Genghis Khan Statue complex

Genghis Khan Statue complex is located 54 kilometers from the capital city Ulaanbaatar. The equestrian Statue of Genghis Khan  was built in 2008 on the occasion of the eight-hundredth anniversary of the foundation of the Mongolian Empire. And in honor of its founder, Genghis Khan.  The statue in total is 40m high from the surface erected at about 10 m high foundation. So according to the legend Genghis Khan found a golden whip here. So it was built here. And the statue is turned towards the East, towards the conqueror’s place of birth. It stands on a 10-metres high base that is surrounded by 36 columns. It is representing the 36 kings Mongolia experienced during its history, from the first one, Genghis Khan, to the last one, Ligden Khan.
