When comes to culture and traditional heritage, it is always down to personal experience and understanding. For me visiting this heritage destination has been an eye opener. I do suggest visit the place with open heart and wisdom and do not be pretentious when travelling to such place. I recommend it but be ready and willing to embrace the culture.... More

One of the things to see in Ulaanbataar but apart from the 26m high bronze guilt statue of Buddha there is little to see here apart from pigeons by the thousands. This is very similar to many other Buddhist temples around the world but in generally poor repair snd condition. None of the gardens are maintained which makes the whole... More

This is a must if you are staying in Ulaanbaatar. I purchased some interesting paintings from sellers outside of the temple. Also it has an interesting nomadic community on the walk from the center of the city.

Obviously very historic and sacred but the monks made me very welcome. The statues and decorations are beautiful. The history of Magjid is palpable and I'm so delighted it survived the Russian occupation so well, albeit depleted.

I overuse the word awesome. But this place just filled me with awe. I entered the temple and just could do nothing but be in awe of the amazing statue of Janraisig.

standing in front of the Migjid Janraisig statue makes you forget all the traffic-jam and busy life in Ulaanbaatar. it's a special place to try to remember what really counts in life and also feel how we are all part of the same world and need to respect each other.

You walk north from the western main intersection along a pine tree-lined road and in front of you looms a gorgeous temple. It is the Migjid Janraisig Sum or the Temple of Migjid Janraisig built in 1911 to mark Mongolian independence. You are on the Dalkhin Denj, or Hill of Dalkh, which has been the uninterrupted hill of buddhist philosophy... More

Great walking tour target for those who like to walk, in Ulaanbataar. You pay a small fee to get onto the grounds, and after that it is a wonderfully busy place with lots of picture opportunities. There are several smaller buildings on the site, each with their own characteristics, but the main temple really drew me, because I saw crowds... More
