What is a Yurt?

A Yurt is a portable round bent structure traditionally used by nomads in Central Asia as their home. Originally from a Turkish word referring to the imprint left on the ground by a moved yurt, and by extension, sometimes a person’s homeland, kinsmen or feudal appendage. In Modern Turkey the word “Yurt” is used as the synonym of homeland or dormitory. The translated word in Mongolian, simply means “Home”.
