  • Not sure how anyone can NOT stop here if you are visiting. There is so much history here and one of the few Buddhist temples left. Very impressive. This temple was spared and I’m happy for Mongolia it...  more »
  • The temple has withstood the destruction of the Communist era, when they slaughtered more than 30,000 monks and destroyed almost all the temples. This has resisted and is probably the most bela located at UB.

Where to stay in Ulaanbaatar

The capital city of Ulaanbaatar doesn't disappoint when it comes to its choice of accommodations, with a range of styles and types to choose from. The usual place to look lies to the northeast of the main train station, in the central district that surrounds Chinggis Khaan Square. Luxury and non-luxury chain hotels, some storied older hotels, and a variety of fairly standard options abound across this central district, close to the main urban attractions. Dotted throughout are a number of guesthouses, providing value for money mid-range and budget options, including some offering shared "gers" (traditional Mongolian sleeping tents).
