The Genghis Khan Statue complex is located 54 km from Ulan Bator, Mongolia, on the bank of the Tuul River, in a place called Tsonjin Boldog. A 40 meter high statue on horseback was erected on a 10 meter high base, covered by stainless steel and surrounded by 36 columns. Those 36 columns are meant for the memorial of 36 kings’ intermarry from Genghis until Ligden Khan.

Visitors can ascend to the exhibition hall using an elevator at the back of the horse. They will walk to the head of the horse through the chest and back neck of the horse, where they can have a panoramic view of their surroundings. (Wikipedia)
