"Oboo" Sacred Monuments in Hulun Buir: Their Narratives and Contemporary Worship

Photograph 2. Overlooking Domesticated Nature

Oboo are always erected on high ground, at the top of a hill, on a pass, or on the peak of a mountain, in order to overlook domesticated nature. The Tümen Agta-Yin Nairin Oboo (“Ten-Thousand-Stampeding-Horses Oboo”) is worshipped by the Old Barga people.
