Erdene Zuu Khiid is a really magical place! It is one of the few Buddhist monasteries in Mongolia to have survived the Stalinist purges of the 1930's, which saw the destruction of 90% of Mongolia's monasteries.
Located near the town of Kharkhorin, it is a truly splendid set of temples enclosed by a huge rectangular wall with 108 stupas. Only 3 temples remain today, 2 of them are in the Chinese-style similar to Amarbayasgalant Khiid, and the third one is in the Tibetan-style. There are some really impressive and beautiful statues, murals, thangkas and tsam masks inside the temples.
It is a fabulous place infused with atmosphere.
I strongly recommend spending a long time here as it is a real joy to wander around the complex. Most tourists come in the morning and only spend an hour or two at the monastery. Once they have gone you will have the whole place practically to yourself!
