The UUGUUL cultural center was founded by Steve E. MOREL, located in the Mongolian capital, Ulaanbaatar.
The goal behind this center is to promote and contribute into preserving the ancestral Mongolian culture. Language, history and ancestral art and music are at the core of this goal!

You can find more about our center on Facebook here.

Finally, you can find in our shop calligraphy, drawing as well as stone seal, all totally hand made. Those are a real financial contribution to our goal of cultural preservation.
