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. See Genghis Khan Statue Complex and all Ulaanbaatar has to offer by arranging your trip with our Ulaanbaatar trip planning website .

  • Our family of four enjoyed our visit to the statue complex and climbed to the top of the horse head for a fabulous view.  more »
  • Be prepared for the sheer size of the whole complex. We were greeted by an English speaking lady who helped us understand about the complex, what the big boot meant and also the significance of the si...  more »
  • Ginormous statue. Has become a museum pedestal, but not a big exhibition. Mean size of Genghis Khan include boots of the size of the world's largest, is on it is not. You can climb to the head of a horse. Because there is an elevator is not so hard. Passing the narrow stairs are tough.

  • Just out of town, the massive statue of Ghengis khan stands tall. My understanding is that the current president commissioned the project a number of years ago. With ambitions to become a mighty complex, the surrounding grounds are unfinished and the pavements starting to deteriorate. Locals have stalls near the car park where you can get photos with eagles and condors. Small museum and BIG gift shop inside
  • The Chinggis Khaan Statue was brilliant, and massive structure to come our of the hills. represented on the hillside. Whilst we were there another rally was having a look around. A famous statue, offering something wlse not seen. Unfortunatly didn't go up and look out on the top of the horses mane.
  • Was so excited to visit this and was definitely not disappointed. It's not an easy place to get to, as it is far out of Ulaan-Bator however it is worth the effort. So impressive within its stark environment, the day I went it was very quiet within the centre but the monument is worth seeing up close regardless do whether anything else is happening.
  • I didn't think it would be this big. And beautiful inside.. The view from the top was amazing..
  • The statue itself is amazingly stunning. It's sheer size is enough to take your breath away. Definitely worth visiting. Having said that this is certainly a 'tourist attraction' if your looking for an authentic Mongolian experience you won't find it here. Get out of the city and stay with nomadic families in the Gobi for that. The complex is also not yet finished, there are grander plans in store to turn the whole area into a big tourist park similar to the Lantau Buddha in Hong Kong or other such cultural icons.
