ULAN BATOR, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) -- Muslims in Mongolia continued their celebration of Kurban Ait, the most important feast of the Muslim calendar, which fell on November 27.

Muslims in the country arranged a banquet for the poor during the event, which is dedicated to paying tribute to Allah -- the Great Owner of the World for Muslims.

Muslims from Turkey, Austria and Germany went to Olgii in Bayan-Olgii Province to present gifts and strengthen the community of the religion.

"We intend to make a wide introduction of the celebration of Kurban Ait in Mongolia and its religious formalities," said Osman Altan and Ismail Yavuz, two guests who also vowed to come to Mongolia again in the future.

It is estimated that more than 10 thousand sheep were used for food during the celebration.
