  • The main monastery in Ulaanbaatar. Interesting, and the statues are impressive. No interpretation given- brush up on your Tibetan Buddhism before you go. Only go clockwise if you circumambulate.  more »
  • We visited Gandan monastery. It is walking distance from city center (It is around 1.5 kms). Migjid Janraisag is huge spectacular statue. It was intersting to visit.  more »

  • Interesting place but you’ll pay 4000 MGT to get in and they’ll force the 7000 MGT for photography on you even if you don’t want to take photos.
  • I had relaxed and peaceful feeling in here.
