Book a Room Near Ulaanbaatar’s Best Tourist Attractions
Ulaanbaatar is the capital of Mongolia, a country located between Russia and China. The country was built as a nomadic Buddhist monastic centre in 1639, and its population grew over time – now the most populous Mongolian city. As for the weather, the city mostly has cold and dry winters and short warm summers. If you are planning a stay in the capital city of Mongolia and the seat of the Mongolian government, here are some of the most important landmarks you can pay a visit to:
This Buddhist monastery was first erected in 1727, and the term Gandantegchinlen can be translated as “a place of complete joy.”
Gandantegchinlen Monastery is home to the Megjid Janraisig statue, which was built to commemorate Mongolian independence from China. The Megjid Janraisig statue is the main attraction of the monastery. Some other attractions include the Kalachakra temple, hundreds of images of the Buddha of longevity, Ayush, and Öndör Gegeen Zanabazar.
It is a great place for those interested in Buddhism, and its university and library provide even more materials for tourists and educators. By browsing the souvenir shop located next to the southern gate, you will be able to get even more out of your trip.
Ulaanbaatar’s central square was named after Damdin Sukhbaatar, the Mongolian revolutionary who died in 1923. The name of the square was changed to Chinggis Square in 2013, but again it was changed back to Sükhbaatar, with monuments dedicated to Genghis Khan, the founder of Mongolian Empire, as well as to Ögedei Khan and Kublai Khan.
The focal point of the square is the Government Palace which is located on the north side. The palace could be considered the seat of government, housing the offices of the president and the prime minister, as well as State Great Khural, or the Mongolian Parliament.
Located around 15 kilometres from the city centre, Manjuri Monastery is yet another important and welcoming site in the capital. The Monastery was dedicated to Manjuri, the Bodhisattva of wisdom, whose name means “great glory” in Sanskrit.
The monastery grounds are full of artefacts and ruins that are of great historical and religious significance. For instance, the ruins of Togchin Temple is a reminiscence of Tibetan temples and was constructed in 1749. In the cliffs above, there are also several paintings and statues with Buddhist themes and Tibetan language.
Due to its distance and location, some people may find it inconvenient to visit the grounds, but the visit is certainly worth the difficulty.
Gorkhi-Terelj National Park
One of the most famous national parks of Mongolia is Gorkhi-Terelj National Park, which is located around 66 kilometres from the city centre. The southern part of the park is a tourist resort with campsites, restaurants, and shops to browse and spend time in.
If you can visit other less developed parts of the park, your eyes will detect many other sources of attraction. For instance, the park is home to some spectacular natural rock formations such as the turtle rock. You may also see nomads camping in the area or the Park and Ride where you can even rent a horse.
Transportation in Ulaanbaatar
For international flights in and out of Mongolia, the Chinggis Khaan airport in Ulaanbaatar is the only one to choose. Buyant-Ukhaa International Airport is also the back-up and is semi-operational.
As for travelling by train, Ulaanbaatar railway station, the largest in the country, is the main station in Ulaanbaatar, and is the connection of trans-Siberian Railway through trans-mongolian line, and connects Ulan-Ude in Russia to Jining in China.
To travel within the city by public transport, the trolleybus system with 4 lines and Ulaanbaatar Railbus make navigation easy. Passenger vans and taxis are also operational in the capital.
