Main Cities & Population Centres of Dornogovi Province :
The Capital City of the Dornogovi Aimag is the town of Sainshand (Сайншанд) also known as Buyant-Uhaa, which is in essence a group of heavy industrial settlement rather than a real town.  It is located in the eastern Gobi desert steppe, and is one of the stations on the Trans-Mongolian Railway. The city has a population of around 19,548 (2006), down from the around 25.000 souls counted in the year 2000 census.

Sainshand sum territory consisits of 5 bag(communes). Bags ##1,2,3 are creating city main part Övör (Southern), bag #4 is Ar (Northern) part, bag #5 is remote (46 km S from city main part) settlement Züünbayan. Otherwise the main section of Sainshand can be divided into North and South. The Northern and Southern parts of Sainshand Town are sperated from eachother by a set of Low Hills.
The Southern part has the largest population and is home to the Dornogovi Aimag Provincial Authorities and their offices, and are thus considred th downtown area. Some 12,687 lived there when estimated at the end of 2006 AD. Since, the population has slightly risen, reaching 13,463 at the end of 2008. As the trek from the drying countryside to the City continues and oil and mining activities increase, sainshand is bound to slowly grow.

Within the Sainshand sum, the Züünbayan bag (District) is nearly strictly an oil production settlement. It is located well away from the North and South Districts, at some 46km to the South. Its population of oil-workers and engineers is around 2000. Naturally, a railway line connects the oil workers district of he railway line connects Züünbayan to the Sainshand station on the Trans-Mongolian Railway.

The restored Buddhist monastery Khamariin Khiid (Khamar) is an hour south, and Sainshand itself houses a museum to the nineteenth century monastic and literary figure Danzanravjaa, a prominent leader of the Nyingma (Red Hat) school of Tibetan Buddhism.
