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.

  • On the Museum stands a huge monument. Admission fee is paid, get inside and takes people explained in English. You can view the monument horse neck per elevator and stairs. A huge statue of Genghis Khan with a view from the observation deck is very powerful. On the first floor of souvenir and is, may also exhibit is located underground, in situ write their names with Mongol tradition in exhibition service (charges apply). Superb because the paper had written would put twirling round a wooden tube.

  • A bit out of town, 1.5hrs in a taxi, but worth the effort. Nice museum with lots of information and a little elevator + a few stairs to the top of the horse for a good view of Genghis and the surround...  more »

  • Stainless steel huge statue in the middle of vast area of land. About an hour drive from Ulaanbaatar. Only if you are a fan of this past personality or into history of Mongolia. You may climb up the statue until to the head of the horse and see a lovely view from the top. Museum beneath the statue worth visiting.
  • Great tourist experience to learn some Mongolian history. The view from the statue is very impressive. I would love to go back to this place!
  • We had so much fun here. The museum was very educational. The statue amazing and the restaurant had maybe the best pork chops and roasted veggies I've ever had. I highly recommend this place!
  • Very impressive metal statue. I liked the lift as it saved the climb . Good gift shop.
  • World's largest such statue. Not too crowded. Also has some nice museums and options to get photographed in traditional costumes.

Where to stay in Ulaanbaatar

The capital city of Ulaanbaatar doesn't disappoint when it comes to its choice of accommodations, with a range of styles and types to choose from. The usual place to look lies to the northeast of the main train station, in the central district that surrounds Chinggis Khaan Square. Luxury and non-luxury chain hotels, some storied older hotels, and a variety of fairly standard options abound across this central district, close to the main urban attractions. Dotted throughout are a number of guesthouses, providing value for money mid-range and budget options, including some offering shared "gers" (traditional Mongolian sleeping tents).
