This article explores the development and transformation of the legend of Muna Mountain, which describes Chinggis Khan’s funeral cortège. In particular, it argues that this legend arose among the post-Yuan Mongols in order to sanctify ‘Inner Mongolia’ as the new homeland through the establishment of the cult of Chinggis Khan at the Eight White Tents. Over time, however, both the legend and the cult changed and these developments are further explored in relation not only to the socio-political fragmentation of the sixteenth century but also the introduction of tantric Buddhism.
