Must visit museum in Mongolia not only for its historical and aesthetic atmosphere like architecture and interiors, objects and patios inside of palace, but it is place you feel cosy and relaxed.

If you have seen Tibetan buddhist temple icons etc then this is the same stuff - albeit of a high quality. The high Lama’s private meditation temple is full of erotic art - I wonder what he did there?!!

Found this by chance when visiting a nearby eatery for lunch. The displays were interesting. Disappointing was the fee to take photos.

This is a museum that used to be Buddhist temple. Now, it's surrounded by skyscrapers, but inside a lot of it feels like it must have a century ago. Only about 3 or 4 of the temples are currently open to the public, but inside...More

This is a museum in the middle of modern highrises, which provides an interesting contrast. You can go here alone, i.e. without a guide, since the exhibits are explained in English. The museum provides a good introduction into a Lama Temple. Definitely worthwhile!

Hidden among the tallest skyscapers in UB, this hidden gem is an architectural wonder. It's a complex of different tiny buddhist temples. A peaceful yet colourful place in the middle of UB chaos.

I have visiting UB over many years. The standard of the museum has consistently improved. Be sure to take your time and ask lots of questions. The guides are incredibly knowledgeable.

The old temple is amid the city sky scrapers, which gives it a very interesting contrast! The temples are laid out very well and have interesting information to read in English. Really enjoyed this temple visit- would recommend.

A lot of the information people have a given here is wrong. The museum most certainly is open, and I believe admission is 4000 or 8000 tugrik, and there definitely is a photo fee. The photo fee is quite expensive: 40,000... More
