The Genghis Khan Statue Complex lies outside of Ulaanbaatar and can be seen for miles as it overlooks the steppes and mountains surrounding it. At the entrance you will find restaurants, souvenir shops and an archaeological museum for you to explore before approaching the statue. Visitors can walk from the chest, through the neck to the head for a panoramic view of the area and ger camps nearby.

This gigantic, breath-taking, stainless steel statue of Genghis Khan atop his horse is 40 meters high and was built in 2008 to honour the 800th anniversary of the founding of the Mongol Empire. It is the world’s largest equestrian statue made from two hundred and fifty tons of stainless steel.

The statue faces to the East, as if Genghis Khan was returning home, and if you look to the East you could see the small statue of his mother welcoming him home.
