- 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.

- 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 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Came across this statue by accident. Located in downtown UB in a tiny park near the UB Mart shopping center.Written 10 October 2022
- While traveling from the Chinggis Khan Airport to downtown Ulaanbaatar, we came across this park covered in snow with a Camel Caravan. The statues are larger than live and consist of a camel herder on horseback, a large dog and several camels in a convoy. My driver informed me that this complex was designed to honor and show the old Silk Road which ran through the area hundreds of years ago. Unfortunately the intersection in extremely congested with traffic and stopping to take pictures is not recommended due to safety concerns.Written 4 December 2019

- If you cross Peace Avenue in front of the Central Post Office and head south on Chinggis Khan Avenue one will eventually pass in front of Tsedenbal Square This park is directly in front of the National Drama Academic Theater (an imposing red and white building), the Grand Khan Irish Pub and the beginning of Seoul Street, the liveliest part of town. Located in the center of the park is a larger than life bronze snow covered statue of a seated man at a small table facing the traffic on Chinggis Khan Avenue.. The man is Yumjaagiin Tsedenbal, a Mongolian Communist leader who ran the country for 44 years. A Small plaque in Mongolian and English provides some information about his accomplishments. However over the years the plaque has become damaged due to weather conditions and is very difficult to read. In most nations who were under Soviet control and were finally able to achieve independence, statues of communist leaders were torn down or destroyed. Not so in Mongolia. It should be noted that this statue was erected 10 years after Mongolia removed the yoke of Soviet control. It shows the respect Mongolia still has for this leader. Directly in front of the statue just prior to the curb, one finds a large red "Ulaanbaatar" sign dusted with snow.. Very colorful and a great photo spot. As statues go this just one more of the hundreds located in Ulaanbaatar. If you are in the neighborhood, stop by and take a look at the park, take a few pictures and continue on to your destination.Written 9 December 2019
- Located behind the Beatle Square Monument just across Peace Avenue directly in front of The State Department Store sit a statue to Balingiin Tserendorj, the first Prime Minister of The Peoples Republic of Mongolia from 1924 - 1928. The Tserendorj sculpture was designed by Architect B. Dambiinyam, and was unveiled in 1998. Prime Minister Tserendorj had a very interesting career and did much to establish independence for Mongolia. The statue does not do him justice. It is a white larger than life statue of a deceased grumpy looking old politician sitting in a chair facing the Mongolian Circus at the end of the street. There is nothing appealing about this particular statue. A metal placard in Mongolian and English tells a little about this individual. However the placard has been damaged by weather over the years and is difficult to read. Overall not a very impressive statue compared to others located throughout Ulaanbaatar. Would not recommend a special trip to visit this site. However if you are in the neighborhood, a quick 5 minute look might be sufficient.Written 15 December 2019
- A rather lost looking Buddha in amongst all the high rise, nice little park I guess.
Interesting to see.Written 6 October 2023
- Fun to walk past a monument, for once not dedicated to a politician or a war hero, but to a song for children. The reason behind this bronze sculpture made in 2011 was a children's song called 'Maanuu Naash Ir' (come along my little buddy), which was composed in 1956 by B.Luvsansharav with lyrics by Ch.Lhasuren. It has remained popular since then, so that families with their children still pass by this monument to sing the song in front it.Written 13 January 2019
- I was excited because I keep my TripAdvisor list of attractions when I visit a new city and as a scavenger hunt, I try to find most by myself. We were walking along the street and came across the National Library and there was the Byambyn Rinchen Statue. It’s not terribly exciting but it was for me as we pretty much stumbled upon it.Written 13 October 2017
- Located on the North West side of Governmental Palace one will find the Lawyers' Plaza and a large white and gold colored building. Sitting in front of the building is an beautifully designed statue of an Altai Bighorn Sheep standing on a rocky peak looking out over the countryside. The Altai Bighorn Sheep is on the endangered animal list and every year the population shrinks. The statue was designed by Rich Tailor and was presented to the Mongolian government by Canada in 2006. The details in the sculpture reflect the true spirit of Mongolia. Wild and free. It is an amazing statue and one of the very few found in Ulaanbaatar, that does not honor an individual. If one is interested in Mongolia, strongly recommend stopping by and admiring the statue. It is well worth your time and will provide you with great photographs.Written 22 December 2019
- One evening returning to my hotel, I turned left instead of right and landed up in front of the National University of Mongolia just across the street from Government Place. Very impressive yellow, red and white building with stately columns in front. Circular driveway with a small garden area. Standing in the middle of the frozen over garden is a large statue of a man in an open trench coat, wearing a Soviet style military uniform with a chest full of decorations and ribbons. Next to the statue you will find a small metal placard, telling you that this statue is dedicated to Khorloogin Choibalsan. Marshall Choibalsan led an interesting life and is credited with establishing the Choibalsan University on October 5, 1942. After Choibalsan University opened its doors. it became the first university in Mongolia. The University was re-designated as the National University in 1990. Interesting statue and University. Suggest spending 5-10 minutes at the statue and admiring the National University building.Written 19 December 2019
