This is a not-to-be-missed site if you are in Ulaan-Battar. The temples are magnificently decorated and the statues and other artwork are true works of art. My only complaint is that they asked for over $20 dollars if you want to photograph in the temples...More

We have visitied this twice. The first time we had an outstanding guide who explained the meanings and history of the art, decorations and statues as we went around. Like a cathedral, each work of art small or large is there for a reason and...More

Lovely place. If only there were no high rises nearby. People were taking photos all over. It's so quaint and beautiful. The museum itself was a bit scary with the large papier-mâché statues - they had depictions of heaven and hell.

We chose this temple as it is one of the few attractions in the city. It is quite area to stroll around and admire. Well worth visiting! I didn't find the skyscrapers offensive in the background instead an interesting mix of old and new.

The temple itself looks quaint and beautiful, but the camera fees are excessive. If you don't mind not taking photos, then go for a visit. But if you want photos, climb up on the roof of a truck, preferably the one you are with, parked...More

Located between Blue Sky and Shangrila hotels, this is one of the city landmarks that one shouldnt miss. Cost 8000 tugriks per person. Photography or video attracts additional charges. Temple is well presrrved especially the main hall. A good 30-40 min to cover all the...More

It's a delightful piece of history with plenty to see. Located in the centre of UB it is easy to find and worth a visit. It is a relatively small place so easy to get around with lots of interesting exhibits. A little cultural gem.
