The word, yurts, of Turkish origin, refers to the type of home that nomadic people of that nation used to live in, often still live in today. Yurts describes a round dwelling, historically made from animal skins and poles, looking a bit like the North American tent, but with a broader, flatter and larger roof, connecting to cylindrical walls. The design of a yurts is at least 3000 years old, and they are still the most common type of dwelling in Mongolia. Yurts homes are practical, comfortable, and most important to the nomadic culture that designed them, portable and lightweight.
