Zaisan Monument & Buddha Statue
enjoy the most impressive panoramic view of the city
Surrounded by beautiful landscaping, Zaisan Monument is an integral part of nation’s history, located in the south of Ulaanbaatar City, right between the Tuul River and the Bogd Khan Mountain. 200 steps to the top of the hill and you have a chance to enjoy the most impressive panoramic view of the city and the four sacred mountains that surround it - Bayanzurkh, Chingeltei, Songinokhair Khaan and Bogd Khaan.
The memorial was constructed in a memory of Soviet soldiers who laid down their lives during World War II. It represents several constructions: circular memorial painting and legendary tank T-34 monument. On the left from the hill you can find a religious complex with 15 m high gilded Buddha statue.
This place combines recent Soviet past of Mongolia and traditional Buddhist beliefs. The fantastic view on the city with the splendid mountain backdrop, both during the day and night, makes this place essential to visit.
