No one really knows where the body of Genghis Khan is buried, but this spot has an attractive museum about the famed leader and the Mongolian culture of that time. It is not easy access from downtown Baotou, but if you have a car or go on a tour, then it is easy. Displays have information in Mandarin, Mongolian, and... More

The mausoleum complex is nice and clean. The exhibits had quite a bit of information in English, which was appreciated. It is important to note, however, that Genghis Khan's remains are not located here - their location is unknown. And many of the items and other things displayed here seem to be incorrectly attributed - claims that items belonged to... More

This is a nice mausoleum if you want to pay respects to the great leader ghengis Khan. It's a beautiful building and you learn lots about his history.

If you find yourself in Baotou, this is a must-see. Ornate and impressive; lots of interesting historical context. The exhibit detailing Ghengis Khan's "punitive expeditions" is pretty interesting.

Although a couple of hours out of Baotou it is well worth making the effort to visit. It is outstanding with a highlight being the Mongolian Horsemen providing demonstrations of their art.

The place is one hour driving from Oros and four hours from Hohhot, so yes it is far, but we loved the spot. Maybe we are kind of historians nerds, but it is nice to see his descendants coming every day to pay their tribute to the father of a nation. The place is a kind of museum, as no... More

History lovers will love it. However, non history lovers will find this place a bore as it's not conveniently located.

The mausoleum is not in a convenient location travel-wise and it certainly isn't informative or that interesting. If you really happen to be in the area, you might enjoy seeing the buildings and taking some pictures. I would rather spend my time in the desert when visiting Inner Mongolia.

Interesting memorial site dedicated to Genghiz Khan. If you love trivia or are a history buff, you will love this place. Lots of statues and exhibits, but nothing interactive. Colourful with great photo opportunities.
