Pope Francis: Gers (Yurts) are efficient, ecologically sound, versatile, and multifunctional dwelling places

Pope Francis in Mongolia

Pope Francis made a historic visit to Mongolia in September 2023. He visited gers at the Mongolian government palace and the one near a catholic church in the capital city.

Gers was an important theme in his speeches; he appreciated it as an ecological dwelling and used symbolism associated with Gers and their structure to convey his messages on broader subjects of environmental preservation and religious tolerance.
