4.1/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web
Explore intricate carvings and elaborately decorated roofs in the heart of the city at Choijin Lama Temple Museum, a Buddhist monastery. Completed in 1908 by the Chinese and converted into a museum by the Soviets, the temple houses important Buddhist statues, including that of Sakyamuni and Choijin Lama made in the 18th century. The four-temple complex was occupied by the Mongolian Khan's brother, whose teacher was mummified and placed inside a statue here. With characteristic Chinese-style pointed roofs and one of the prayer halls in the shape of a yurt, the temple museum makes an interesting, serene escape from the city bustle.
