Sprawling grounds with 108 stupas on the walls surrounding the compounds. The buildings that remain and restored contains many exhibits. There are guides on the grounds to explain, including an English one. Photo taking is not allowed inside the buildings, but outside is fine.

Ancient structures with the footprint of several structures that are no more. Take time to read about Karakorum, the actual city is no more. This was a monastery. It's amazing any of it survived the Cultural Revolution.

Karakorum was the capital in times of Mongolian Imperial. The son of Gengis Khan settled the capital here. Today you can visit a small place of the ruins, close to the monastery. You can read more about our experience around Mongolia travelling by our own.
