I really recommend this small temple museum. The juxtaposition between old and new is fascinating. Also pay close attention to the artwork on the temple walls and ceilings... interesting!

We went there in winter. They opened each temple for us. It means they called each other with talki walki to prevent that we were moving. We could not take our time or be alone anywhere, outside or inside. It felt like we disturbed the...More

A quiet place that's a contrast in the middle of UlaanBaatar, at least in October. One of the temples not destroyed in the purges of the 1930s. The outer courtyard is used for concerts. The temples are in beautiful condition for how many years it's...More

The temples are all a bit drab on the outside; some external maintenance is required, but inside are very spectacular and well illuminated. The admission fee is rather high at 8,000 T, and although this alows you to walk and look everywhere, if you want...More

This is a must visit place in Ulanbataar and I strongly recommend every visitor to see it to get a glimpse of Mongolian culture and art. Amazing collection of paintings as well.

Very beautiful, almost all the attendants speak English so will be able to tell you the myths that go along with the Temple and there are a lot of signs in English that take you through the history
