Open and read “Jangar” now!
The Jangar extols in song an ideal country-Bumba,a land of happiness and abundance.
“It was at the beginning of times
In the ancient golden age
Of Jangar’s dawn beginning to break,
Of Bumba’s flowering starting to be conceived,
Of the Burkhan’s holy era”
From the book “Folk and Epic”. By Elza Bair Guchinova.
Eelyan Ovlaa (1857-1920) is the single most famous jangarchi.
