Invetion of mongolia

  1. 1. Inventions of mongolia<br />
  2. 2. Ger, Mongolian traditional dwelling<br />
  3. 3. The Mongolian Ger is ideally suited to the country's extremes of climate and the people's nomadic way of life. It is a multipurpose dwelling that can be easily collapsed, transported to another place and put up again fully preserving its original shape.<br />Scholars believe the Mongolian ger has a 2500-3000 year history<br />
  4. 4. This dwelling of nomads is collapsible, eaasy to erect and transport. The ger furniture is alsorelatively light, easy to carry, and small to fit the size of ger. The Mongolian ger looks small, but it is amazingly spacious inside, quite stable against strong windand air is well ventilated in ger.<br />
  5. 5. Traditional yurts consist of a circular wooden frame carrying a felt cover. The felt is made from the wool of the flocks of sheep that accompany the pastoralists. The timber to make the external structure is not to be found on the treeless steppes, and must be obtained by trade in the valleys below.<br />The frame consists of one or more lattice wall-sections, a door-frame, roof poles and a crown. Some styles of yurt have one or more columns to support the crown. The (self-supporting) wood frame is covered with pieces of felt. <br />

  19. 19. Depending on availability, the felt is additionally covered with canvas and/or sun-covers. The frame is held together with one or more ropes or ribbons.<br />The structure is kept under compression by the weight of the covers, sometimes supplemented by a heavy weight hung from the center of the roof. They vary regionally, with straight or bent roof-poles, different sizes, and relative weight.<br />A yurt is designed to be dismantled and the parts carried on camels or yaks to be rebuilt on another site.<br />
  20. 20. The ger, round and squat, can withstand harsh winds while the quick drying felt is good protection against the rain and snow. In the towns and urban-type settlements, gers are being ousted by modern well-built housing. Young Mongols prefer to live in comfortable flats. In summer, however, urban dwellers often spend their vacations in gers, leaving the urban conveniences for a short while to enjoy the unmatched comfort of the ger. <br />
