The Palace is about 2km from Central Ulaanbaatar, 12000MNT by taxi or 500mnt by bus (taxis easier because unless you speak Mongolian catching a bus is not easy at all!) and is definitely worth heading out to. Friendly staff in the ticket office- entrance will...More

Not sure what to think of this place. I got the impression that they didn't have the funds to renovate. I think they had a lot of nerve asking for extra fees to take photos. A lot of it looked a bit run down. Some...More

This would have been a nice museum if they didn´t try to rip-off the tourists wanting to take photos. First there was an entrance fee (reasonable) and we went on a guided tour that was included. Unfortunately the guide spoke very poor English and was...More

Breathtaking temples, and a very interesting museum in what used to be the Winter palace of the Bogd Khan.

Go there in the afternoon after your visit to the monastery and Chojin lama museum. It gives a nice glimpse of the local culture, values and architecture as well arts.

This indoor/outdoor complex has a lot of really precious artifacts from the fairly recent Bogd Khan era. Although there were no English explanations, the icons, art work and artifacts are fascinating. Np photos allowed inside.

Lots of Buddists artefacts. When tired of them go to the winter palace where you can see how Bogd Khan, the last emperor of Mongolia lived. It is an astonishing story. Very high price for taking pictures in the museum - 50 000 MNT.

The last palace left in UB. It's now a museum. The exterior of the palace is very old need a makeover. On the other hand, the rundown palace gave me a feel of the fallen Mongolian empire in few hundreds years ago. It has large...More

We headed off to visit the Winter Palace of the Bogd Khan (also called Jebtzun Damba Hutagt VIII), Mongolia’s last king and the eighth Living Buddha. The palace was built in the late 1800s. Somehow, this palace escaped destruction during the Stalin period and was...More
