The Buddhist monk who died in 1927 is still not decayed

Lama Itigelov

Lama Itigelov was the abbot of Hambo temple in the former Soviet Union, died in 1927, buried sitting in a lotus position. When his body was exhumed in 1955 and 1973,  it was amazing that there was no signs of decay on the body and looked like it died 2 days ago, the shocking news was locked by Communist Party as they didn’t want to extend religion influence. When Itigelov’s body was 3rd time exhumed in 2002, it was still perfectly preserved and the experts on spot confirmed the body hadn’t been embalmed, the temperature and humidity are very normal in his cemetery.
