One of the must visit places near Ulaanbaatar is DAY TRIP TO ‘’CHINGGIS KHAAN STATUE COMPLEX’’
The legendary man Chinggis Khaan or Genghis Khan was born in north east of Mongolia around 1162. At 20, he began building a large army with the intent to destroy individual tribes in Northeast Asia and unite them under his rule. He was successful; the Mongol Empire was the largest empire in the world before the British Empire, and lasted well over 200 years after his own death in 1227. The statue of Chinggis Khaan originally named as Golden Whip- part of the reason is he had found whip there the exactly same spot where the statue itself standing. Still today among Mongols, if we find a whip- we do appreciate for that because it brings a good fortune.
