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.

  • When he asked about it built this giant statue in the middle of nowhere, commented that this was the place where Genghis Khan found the whip with which unified all the Mongols. That gives meaning to the tenir who travel there to make the visit. The views are great from the top (from the head of the horse)

  • One of the highest horse rider statue. It possible to go on top of the statue. I'm the beginning there will be a short instruction in English by one of the stuff. Inside the statue are furthermore museums, cafes, souvenir shops and some customs to wear some traditional clothes.
  • Watch as the statue of the world's greatest leader, and the ruler of the largest empire to have ever been formed, gazes at the sun in the Mongolian skies, and stands in majesty in the vast steppes. Look back to a time when Chinggis Khaan ruled supreme.
  • 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.
  • Good place for tourists, learnt a lot about the empire.
  • 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!
