This was a beautiful place to visit in Terelj. I was there during winter and it was peaceful and quiet and I enjoyed the short trek up to the temple. The Temple and stairs up to them are steep. Its definitely a must visit if you are in Terelj National Park.
A peaceful hike across the hills from our ger camp led us to the Ariyabal Meditation Temple located on a steep hill. Once you cross the bridge of heaven and climb the 108 stairs you arrive at the main temple surrounded by 108 stupas and 108 prayer wheels.
This temple is situated in the Gorkhi-Terelj park. If you come quite early, before the main bulk of tourists, you will be able to enjoy the calm of this place and spend a good moment discovering the bouddhist religion. Worth to visit.
We thought this was just so beautiful It was built after the end of the Soviet rule, as most Monasteries were destroyed in Mongolia under the direction of Stalin. It is a steep climb up, the views are beautiful from the top and so is the Temple on the inside. Very worthwhile…
Must see this place, take time to step up the hill till the monastery in the top, by chance spend time with a holy Thibetan Lama, in person, and discuss about... Unforgettable moment in Mongolia.
