We visited to Gandan monastery in the morning. It is such as spectacular huge statue. It is surrounded by small 1000 buddhas. In order to experience the monks chanting, you should definitely go there.... more »
Interesting place but you’ll pay 4000 MGT to get in and they’ll force the 7000 MGT for photography on you even if you don’t want to take photos.
I had relaxed and peaceful feeling in here.
