Worth a visit for sure

The second largest statues of the divine Buddhas can be seen here. A special moment is a blessing from the monks as they chant and pray. Definitely stop by.

Have never seen such a tall Buddha (and I currently live in Bangkok.) Very cool location and worthwhile stop while in Mongolia, especially in contrast to all the natural locations and other monasteries, most of which have been destroyed at different points in conflicts. There are a number of interesting buildings, temples, and large prayer wheels around as well that... More

This has been my favourite place in UB so far. It is worth getting to the Monastery earlyish (9am) to see the morning services and monks chanting. Each of the buildings is totally different but all are beautiful. Watching the different people worshiping is really interesting to see. You can easily spend a couple hours wondering around here.

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.
