800 years after he died, has the burial site of one of history's greatest conquerors finally been found ?

The location of Genghis Khan's grave has long been sought. Thought to contain not only the remains of the 13th century imperial ruler himself but artifacts and treasures from his conquests, expeditions from all over the world have traveled Mongolia in search of clues. Now a new project uniting scientists in America with scholars in Mongolia may have uncovered his final resting place indicated by the ruins of an ancient necropolis in a remote part of Western Mongolia.

Amongst the foundations of the 13th to 14th century structure the team have uncovered a number of artifacts and building materials, the location also matches perfectly with historical accounts of Khan's final resting place. "Everything lines up in a very compelling way," said principal investigator Albert Lin.

"For centuries historians and treasure seekers have searched for the burial site of history’s most famous conqueror."

As Maury Kravitz once said: His tomb would eat Tuts tomb for brekfeast. Second Yuan dynasty from China wanted to be burried on secret location near Temujin. So you can imagine treasures there. Khublai Khan in one tomb in another Temujin.
