- With his 40 meters high, this is the highest equestrian statue of the wort ( record that will soon be surpassed by the giant under construction in Mumbai with 212 meters of height dedicated to Shiv Smarak )
The completely iron equestrian statue was build in 2008

- Huge square in the middle of Ulaanbaatar, surrounded by modern buildings and a museum, used for festivals. Was previously called Sukhbaatar Square after Damdin Sukhbaatar, a Mongolian revolutionary hero but renamed Chinggis Square in 2013. There's a large colonnade monument dedicated to Genghis Khan, as well as to Ögedei Khan and Kublai Khan, dominating the square's north face. I arrived during Mongolian New Year so everywhere was closed sadly.Written 12 May 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Built in 1838, this is the largest and most important center of Buddhism. Beautiful buildings and ornate statues. We were able to hear the morning chants and meet with a monk.Written 31 July 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Yes, yes, yes. Awe inspiring.
Inside the monastery. Thank monks.
Alway go to temples, churches and synagogues.
Look at the pics, but ya gotta see in real life.
I finally found it on Apple Maps when I searched for monestry. It’s a 25 min walk from blue sky hotel.
Funny all the signs at a temple saying beware of pickpockets!Written 23 July 2023
- It is a monument at the top of the hill so don't get yourself too worked up with expectations. The Soviet style mural is good and the view across UB is very good. A tip: You can avoid most of the steps up to it by entering the nearby shopping centre and taking a lift to the top which has a walk-way across to it.Written 15 September 2023
- I visited this place twice. This is one of the temples in the same area. Come early, around 10am to see and hear the monks chanting, mesmerising and wonderful.Written 25 October 2019
- Visiting in late January with all the snow covering the surrounding mountains was just amazing. There was no one around. I mean NO ONE. It was so peacuful, so quite, the whole place felt like it nelonged to me. Not a single soul expect for me (and my guide). The suspended wooden bridge was a thrill haha Recommend to pay a visit!Written 1 February 2023
- The station isn't handy for the city centre, but being a spread out city, most areas will require a walk or a taxi. The inside of the station was organised chaos and very busy, but it was a fascinating example of life here.Written 15 November 2018
- Although guide books say this is in Ulaanbaatar, trust me, it is not. You will need to hire a taxi (return), which is best done via your hotel and agreed up front price. It takes 1+ hours to drive there (though it's a scenic drive). The site is very impressive; although ruined (apart from 1 building) it has many ruins and several cave-like decorated meditation niches. The site is a moderately rugged walk uphill (note- no disabled access at all), but worthwhile. Lower down are various outdoor artefacts (giant cauldron, statues etc). The taxi driver will wait for you. Allow at least 2 hours for the site. I’d recommend doing this as a whole day outing.Written 25 May 2020
- This is a very interesting monastery with them being in a ger. Other than that it is your usual Buddhist temple. It’s free to wander around.Written 15 February 2020
- Wandering around Ulaanbaatar in the cold, I stumbled upon this very beautiful white building called the Holy Trinity Church. The Holy Trinity Church is a Russian Orthodox church situated on Zhukova street, 55 - a, in Bayanzurkh District. Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. This Church is the only Russian Orthodox Church in Ulaanbaatar. It is built in the Cross-in-square Russian Revival Style of architectural buildings. Large windows and gold dome and roof are several of the outstanding features displayed by this church. This particular church can trace it roots back to the 1860 and over the years has seen numerous changes. On 22 March 1864 the first priest offered a religious service. This date is considered the beginning of the Holy Trinity parish of Russian Orthodox Church in Mongolia. The church lost it priest in 1867 and the facility was closed. The original Church building was demolished during the 1930s. In 1991 the Russian Orthodox Church was reestablished and the present day building was begun. Construction began in 2005 and lasted until 2009. I had the opportunity to meet one of the priest at this Church and was allowed to visit the interior of the church. Beautiful interior decorated with religious icons and frescos. Extremely peaceful and and solemn. The Holy Trinity Orthodox Church holds services on Saturday and Sunday. It is not a must visit site, but if you are in the area, I would recommend a visit.Written 7 December 2019
