The Atsagatsky datsan  is a very important temple in the history of Buddhism in Buryatia. In the 19-20 centuries it was the largest center for studying and practicing Tibetan medicine on the basis of tantric school.  The datsan had a large printshop where texts were printed in the Mongolian and Tibetan languages. Crown Prince Nicholas visited the Atsagatsky datsan while traveling across Siberia and the Far East in 1891.  The Atlas of Tibetan Medicine has been kept in the Atsagatsky datsan since 1926; it is one of the two unique copies brought to the datsan from Tibet by Buryat lamas. People from all over Siberia used to come to the Atsagatsky datsan to be treated by renowned doctors.  Agvan Dorzhiev, a prominent political figure, reformer of Buddhism, teacher of the 13th Dalai Lama, lived and worked in the Atsagatsky datsan.
