Walking south from the Chinggis Khan square, I shortly reached this Buddhist monastery complex.
I was amazed at the incredible detail everywhere inside – from the panels to the ceiling. The temple also houses an impressive museum with some fascinating artefacts, definitely worth dedicating a decent amount of time to admiring them fully.
I can’t help but compare the temple to similarly styled ones in China – for example the style of the roofs. However, there are some definite differences worth looking out for – for example, the different creatures used for the roof charms.
Definitely a must-see in Ulaanbaatar, and a great introduction to Mongolian culture.
