I don't know much about this statue. When it was build don't know. When I was visiting 1st was in 2007. So far more than 10 years for sure. Last time visited there, the renovation work was going. But still people climbing to the hill...More

It was fascinating to see both old and new! Taxis can give you a ride and it can get chilly. Good tourist stop. Lesson on different religions to see the Buddha statue.

It was nice returning to the Seated Buddha in Darkhan. There were new stuppas and additions to the area since our last visit in 2014. We enjoyed an early morning at the Buddha and enjoyed the peace that came with the limited amount of visitors....More

A very nice outing at sunset and such a restful moment in time. A great view over Darkhan and then across the bridge to the Morin Khuur monument

Darkhan locals are really proud of their main attractions, including the seated Buddha. It's your average stupa, complete with pigeons. Being anti-skyrat, I don't love the place. A pro for the statue site is the view of the valley on the south-western side of town,...More

My wife and i have visited the Seated Buddha twice this summer. It is a great place to clear your head and look over both sides of Darkhan. Sometimes there are people selling birdseed to feed the birds as well. A great place to walk...More
