Take the time to visit Gandantegchinlen Monesty, Sit with the monks during morning prayers and soak up the atmosphere. There are many temples in the complex and if I recall there are 400 resident monks. Wonder around and you'll come across one with a huge gold statue. Just pay the fee and take photos. Well with it

Be warned - inside this small building it is quite claustrophobic - and the small area seems to make the statue all the more appealing. If it is busy in there you walk round the statue pressed up against other people. Beautiful statue and some interesting other items there. Beware of pick-pockets and other ne'er do wells.

Take some time to have a look around inside this temple and look up at the huge statue in awe. It really is an amazing sight to see Photos are charged as extra but for me it was worth it Wallk around the side of the building and spin the prayer wheels

We went with a guide provided for by Stone Horse Expeditions. He was very knowledgeable and explained to us the different statues as well as the surrounding monasteries. If you go alone, you can get a paper pamphlet at the entrance, which has short write ups in English for the different monasteries.

It is a local favorite place. We sat there to observe worshipers asking lamas for their wishes and personal affairs. Very interesting place to visit.

Take your time to explore and take it all in. Always better if your in good company. Embrace (and prepare for) the differences that this places holds. Exceptional experience if you're a Buddhist.

This is a lovely location. The Buddha is amazing; the prayer wheels and other shrines that line the space around the Buddha add to the experience.
