In the 1820's he established Khamar Monastery (Khamriin Khiid) and it was an important center of the Buddhist "red sect", and the seat of the Gobiin Dogshin Noyon Khutagt ("Terrible Noble Saint of the Gobi"). An outspoken critic of the society in which he lived, Danzanravjaa fought against the rigid class and gender distinctions of his day.
He devoted great efforts to the cause of public education, which he promoted at Khamar Monastery through the establishment of an inclusive public school, theater, museum, and library.
