Amazing large central Buddhist statue centered in a complex of older buildings. Right in the heart of UB, easy walk from most hotels.

This was the most amazing temple and summer school for young boys interested in becoming monks! The most impressive Buddha we encountered on our trip!

I have been visiting this for over twenty years. A visit gives the visitor a taste of Buddhism, its sights, sounds and smells.

Amazing giant statue when you walk into the monastery. It's good be quiet in this place because there is a lot of praying going on. Great to be able to visit.

It's inside the Gandan Monastery, and it's one of a good place to understand the budhist culture of Mongolia

The main attraction is the very impressive standing huge statute. The rest of the complex is very similar to other Tibetan monasteries. According to our guide, this statute is a replacement for the former which was melted down to make bullets for the Soviet soldiers...More

Very central location and possibly overlooked because of modern building and construction work nearby. Reasonable fee to enter,extra fee if you want to take photographs. I visited in March so not many other visitors around. Very atmospheric place and each temple has so much detail...More

Well worth taking the time, and small admission fee, to take a look. You have to pay an extra fee to use your camera.
