200-Year-Old Buddhist Monk's Mummy Found In Mongolia 

Archaeologists in Mongolia unearthed a two-centuries-old mummified body of a Buddhist monk on 27 January 2015. The mummy found meditating in the lotus position in Songino Khairkhan province. Experts carried out the basic visual test and believed that his body would have been mummified about 200 years ago. The identity of the monk is unclear, but there is a speculation that he could be the guru of Lama Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov, who was a Buryatia Buddhist Lama of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Itigilov was also mummified and is best known for the lifelike state of his body.
