  • The Buddha was a sight to behold. It costs money to take photos inside and you will be watched like a hawk if you do but great for a very quick visit.  more »
  • Amazing large central Buddhist statue centered in a complex of older buildings. Right in the heart of UB, easy walk from most hotels.  more »
  • Bulgyosa was also the cause over the town over the ghostly, corny, and Oh the fun and irreverent young monks studying in the morning, looked like the feeling of being a fairy tale. Admission to the Buddha (Chin dog fee) 4,000 tögrög, photography 7,000 tögrög
