#3 of 23 in Museums in Mongolia
Escape the traffic and admire the luxuriant decadence of a declining kingdom at Bogd Khaan Palace Museum of Mongolia, the winter palace of Mongolia's last khan. One of the few remaining historical structures left untouched by Soviets or Communists, the Buddhist complex features six temples with elaborately painted warriors on massive entrance doors, colorful sculptures, extravagant interior decor, and Chinese-style hip bamboo roofs. Highlights include a yurt covered in hides of 150 snow leopards, a British horse cart, modern surrealist Buddhist-style murals with erotic scenes, a collection of taxidermied animals from Bogd Khan's private zoo, and exquisitely adorned regalia worn by the khan's pet elephants.
