Monument Tourist Spot
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.

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).

  • Nice statue complex and interesting museum. The view from the head of the horse is quite impressive. Please don't support the animal cruelty that is done in front of the statue (tied eagles, ...) though!
  • Magnificent statue. But more importantly more magnificent views once you get on top of the horse
  • Must visit. Statue very impressive. Interesting history of chinggis Khaan and his family
  • After visiting this place you will think twice before messing with Chinggis Khaan. The traditional garb costs extra but is worth every Tughrik during the photo op at the top.
  • Not far away from UB. Great out of city sightseeing.
