Description

One of Mongolia’s most striking landmarks is this 40m-high silver Chinggis Khaan statue located just off the main road between Nalaikh and Erdene, at a place called Tsonjin Boldog. The dramatic statue, built with private funds, has a lift (elevator) rising up its tail, from where there are steps to the horse’s head. It was built here, so the legend goes, because this was the spot where Chinggis Khaan found a golden whip.
