Genghis Khan Statue Complex, Ulaanbaatar

4.3
Observe a towering monument dedicated to one of history's most famous conquerors at Genghis Khan Statue Complex. Built in 2008, the 40 m (130 ft) tall statue symbolically points to the east, towards Genghis Khan's birthplace. The entire compound lies surrounded by traditional yurts, recreating the 13th-century ambience of the Mongol tribes. As you approach the site, examine the steel equestrian statue standing on top of a visitor center with 36 columns. While inside, visit the museum that exhibits archaeological cultures of Mongolia, and afterwards walk to the statue's head for a panoramic view.

  • A bit expensive place, entry fee is like 3 times more expensive for foreigners than for natives. I wish there was something more to see. The museum downstairs is nice, but small, I think it was bigger last year.
  • It is still in the development stage but whats there is amazing~the view from the statue of Chinggis Khan is breathtaking. Also there's a person who will write whatever you want in Mongolian script. You can rent traditional costumes for Photos. I wish I had had more time to really look around the grounds. And there are gift shops for Mongolian made gifts.
