Religous images from Mongolia

From my visits there, and from some surveys, it appears that Mongolians are about 40% practicing Buddhists/Lamanists, mainly in the large cities, about 5-6% Muslims, mainly among the Kazhaks in western Mongolia, and about 5-6% Catholic/Protestant. In the countryside Shamanism (Tengerism) seems to be more prevalent than the more formal religions since these people are closer to nature.
