Just south of Ulaanbaatar’s city centre, the Winter Palace of the Bogd Khan is a Chinese style palace built for the Bogd Khan (emperor) of Mongolia. It is now a museum, housing some of the possessions of the Bodg Khan such as his bed, throne, and art collection.

At the entrance to the palace are the impressive gates – which have multiple layers of decorative roofs and incredible detailing. I particularly loved all the roof characters and cute bells.

Sadly photos are not allowed within the palace, so you’ll have to go yourself to explore! There are several temples and museum rooms, containing everything from the Bogd Khan’s throne to his stuffed pets. I did manage to snap a couple of pics – see below:
