City creation was completed during the reign of Khubilai Khan. It was an important cultural, commercial and religious center of the Mongol Empire, where all religions can come together in harmony. William of Rubruck, a Flemish Franciscan missionary and papal envoy to the Mongols reached Karakorum in 1254, later wrote that Karakorum is a walled city with four main entrances facing the four directions (south, north, west and east gates), has two large districts with many houses, buildings, temples and markets.
