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.

  • 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 »

  • 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.

  • It is a very massive and impressive building. If you go upstairs to the horse there is great view over the surrounding area. A note though - the elevator does not go to the top and the stairway is very tight so it is difficult to pass people going in the opposite direction. There is also a museum downstairs which is also worth to check out while you are there.
  • Worth the travel to see. The metalwork is exceptional, and the sheer size is breath taking. The section from the elevator to the stairs is tight, so expect to get some high quality cuddling if there is two way traffic in there.
  • Beautiful statue and quite impressive size. The interior is nicely designed and had some well organized history panels. Great view of the surrounding area.
  • Amazing place, lot better than the photos. Well maintained. Surprised we could walk all the way up to the head of the horse and witness some amazing views of the surrounding landscape.
  • If you’re in the area, it’s worth a stop. The statue itself is very impressive and it should be even more so as time progresses. The plan is to have 10,000 soldiers on horseback surrounding the area, although there are currently only about a dozen. Visiting the complex you can also have a nice lunch upstairs or try on traditional Mongolian clothing for photos.
