People along with religious leaders, gather near the flag-decorated sculpture and bow down in prayer. Offering bowls and incense sticks are seen beside the shrine. A Mongolian leader garbed in white and holding a sort of scepter, sits with a retinue under a canopy during the proceedings. He is later seen wearing a white hat and waving the scepter toward the celebrants.
