Genghis Khan Statue Complex, Ulaanbaatar

(4.3/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • You have to drive something until there is, but the look of the horse's head over the endless steppe is worth it then.

  • Monumental statue outside of UB. Inside hollow with elevator and access to observation deck. Good views. Next a series of war er statues. Diö system seems somehow unfinished and verwahllost.

  • Glorious- or should i saw GORE-ious! Lol! XD RANDEM. But really, this monument is magical. For real. It's the real deal. The whole 9 yards. The whole shebang. Ratta tatta tang. On a Wednesday. No, but listen: Genghis "the Great Khan" Khan was a great man. Personally, I knew him to be a loyal friend, steadfast compatriot, and vicarious lover. Not that, um, I knew the later from experience, it's, er, he told me about, alright? It's not- look, Gengy's and my relationship was complicated, and I'd rather not get into it right now. Just know that all those children he reared will be well endowed. Good day sir.
  • 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.
  • You can see it once but really nothing more than a big stainless steal statue in the middle of nowhere. Tourists are brought there in busloads. It's fun to climb on the horse head but that's about it. And they also have the largest Mongolian boot downstairs. Turtle rock and associted park on the way back to UB is far better imho
  • I visited there in August. Nice statue and you can see some beautiful view if you climb up the statue
  • 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.
