    Spending time in the steppes and mountains observing the Takhi as an eco volunteer for the Hustai Park researchers was a peaceful and beautiful experience. Living in a ger for 10 days was a great way to start and end my days.
    The staff takes very good care of visitors as well as the park and its animals.

    On our visit it was quite busy with local worshippers. There was a service in progress and we watched from the rear of the temple. There were a lot of old and young monks taking part. Felt free to write a special intention on a piece of paper and hand it to one of the celebrants for a nominal fee who will pray over it and burn the paper. There is a massive Buddha statue inside. The building is more like a complex than a singular temple.

    A square with interesting architecture around it in any event, we visited in the late afternoon and had a great time photographing the ice sculptures in the square.

    The winter palace had very interesting pieces like stuffed animals, cool gers and nice cutlery. The architecture of the building was too impressive but it was pretty unique as it was buddhist style.

    Directly across the street from Sukhbaaar Square, one will observe a stunning pink and white building with columns in the front. This is the Mongolian State Academic of Theatre of Opera and Ballet. It was established on 15 May 1963 under the direction of the Central Committee of Mongolian Public Revolution Party. Its purpose was to "bring culture to the Mongolian people". Over the years the repertoire of the State Academic Theater of Opera and Ballet has expanded to more than 100 national and world classical works including 56 ballets (as well as several Mongolian ballets) and 54 operas. At present the theatre employees 270 artists, staff and administrators. On 23 November 2019, I was able to obtain a ticket for that night opera, "Madam Butterfly". Madam Butterfly is an opera set in 1904 Japan, has three acts with 34 arias, duets, trios, choruses, etc. I must admit that opera and ballet are not in my repertoire of exciting things to do. The young lady at the Tourist Information Center encouraged me to attend and I was very hesitant about this venue. After seeing the performance, I glad that I had the opportunity to see a world class performance. The music, customs, and performance was outstanding. Well worth the T 68,000 ($25.00 US) ticket price. The acoustic in the theater are top notch and every seat provides an excellent view of the stage. I'm still not an opera fan but I would highly encourage everyone to visit to this Theater while in Mongolia if possible. It is a remarkable experience.

    Impressive temple and close to monastery. With the very tall statue is the centre piece, it felt quite intimate and special to be inside this temple

    The information desk was very helpful and they have a nice souvenir shop.

    The building itself is very clean and stylish with a coffee shop on the 1st floor that does a great americano.
