Genghis Khan Statue Complex, Ulaanbaatar
Categories: Monuments, Tourist Spots
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.

Awesome experience and worth visiting. You can plan to visit the 13th Century National Park from the Chinggis Khan statue place.
This really is quite an impressive statue. The view from the top of the horse's head is fantastic, and the museum in the basement has many fascinating artifacts. It is certainly worth a visit if you are in the country. The shops sell typical souvenirs that you can get in UB, and there is a restaurant on the mezzanine as well.
Great place to visit if you have half a day to spare. Costs 7,000 tugriks per person to go inside but worth it. See the biggest shoe, visit the museum or stand up in the horses head to view the surrounds.
The world's largest statue of a man on a horse! And the world's largest boot is inside. Worth a visit if in Ulaanbaatar
I visited in 2013 and it was quite impressive. The museum in the building was good, small, and slightly bizarre being the only two people there as they had to specially open it for us. We climbed the statue, saw what must be the worlds largest leather boot and marveled at the surrounding landscape. I'm really happy I visited.
Visited this place in August 2011. Great views of the surrounding area. Love that Mongolia is developing its tourism.
