  • I visited in the early hours of the morning. Just in front of the tower by taking Tai Chi and the Tower + Tai Chi combined with stunning, good memories. World Tower is not significant until there is carved into the wall was wonderful. Not a big temple, was heartwarming.

Fine statues and engraving on countless on the walls of the tower was not far away from Tibetan Buddhist Tower, this tower, and also on the walls of the Foundation was to elaborate carved, such as bodhisattva, Lion, elephant and sutras. On the other side of the Tower there old Mongolian astronomical map. Worth seeing.
