Located 54 kilometres away from Ulaanbaatar city, The Genghis Khan Equestrian Statue (Tsonjin Boldog Complex) considered to be the largest horse-riding statue in the world.
Being a part of the Genghis Khan Statue Complex, 40 metres (130 ft) tall statue of Genghis Khan on horseback, was established in 2008 and made of 250 tonnes of stainless steel. The base consists of 36 supporting columns, representing 36 great Khans (Mongol kings) with the entrance gate to the complex being decorated with statues of the nine generals (noyons) of Genghis Khan. Be sure to go to the head of the horse through its chest and neck for a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape from observation deck.
In addition, you can see the amazing archaeological findings at the Mongol Empire history museum, have the opportunity to wear the king's and queen's costumes for family photo or simply get fascinated by one of the world biggest Traditional Boot with height of 9 meters.
Budget at least 1 hour, but 1.5 hour to be more sufficient. It's about 1 hour drive from Ulaanbaatar, along the way, you would see the track of trans-Siberian railway, Mongolian ger (tents), and if you are lucky, some herds of sheep/goat, etc.
If you are visiting Tsonjin Boldog Complex, consider combining it with a visit to Gorkhi Terelj National Park at the same time or some horse riding trip.
