Palace of the Great Khan may lie beneath Khara Khorum

In the 13th century, Kublai Khan, grandson of the great Genghis Khan, moved the ruling city of China to Beijing, but prior to the time, the Mongolian capital, Khara Khorum, was an international city of great renown. Now archaeologists believe they know the whereabouts of the Palace of the Great Khan.

The city of Khara Khorum was mostly abandoned by the late 14th centry, and what remained was destroyed in the 1930s, but new discoveries lead experts to believe that the answers to the mysteries of the Great Khan may lie beneath later construction.
