Naadam is a Mongolian holiday that takes place between the 11th and 13th of July annually and is celebrated throughout the entire country with great fanfare.“Naadam” in Mongolian means “games,” which makes sense since the holiday is primarily centered on three Mongolian pastimes: wrestling, horse racing, and archery. Naadam is sometimes called “Eriin Gurvan Naadam,” meaning “the Three Games of Men.” In recent times, however, women have also participated in horse racing and archery, though not yet in wrestling.
