The central point of Ulaanbaatar, this huge square honours the founder of the Mongol empire, Genghis Khan.

There is a small park-like area to the south of the square, where I admired an old bell – surprisingly similar in style to those found in China. Sadly it seems to have been covered in graffiti though.


The focus of the square itself is a ginormous statue of Genghis Khan astride his horse. It sadly was a slightly grey day for taking photos, but you can imagine how impressive it is!


The north end of the square is dominated by the Government Palace, which also has several statues of important historical figures.


While there isn’t really much to do here, anyone in Ulaanbaatar will no doubt pass through at some point and its worth pausing for a second to admire the statues.
