I really liked this interior. Was there when no one else was and really enjoyed wandering around the huge standing buddha...there are 10's of thousands of little buddhas in the walls around the whole chamber. Very much worth a visit for anyone who is interesting in culture or buddhism.

This is an impressive religious location and really worth the short trip from the city centre to the Gandan Monastery.

A visit here is usually combined with a trip to the Gandantegchenling Monastery, as they are next to each other. It is worth a walk through to look at the many beautiful and unique idols. Like other posters have mentioned, there are so many influences to be seen. Please be sure to respect to rules of walking through a religious... More

It is an imposing statue, the sheer size is awesome. One can see the influence of other religions, particularly Hinduism, in the idol. It is housed in a multistory wooden temple, which in itself is worth seeing.

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.
