Explore intricate carvings and elaborately decorated roofs in the heart of the city at Choijin Lama Temple Museum, a Buddhist monastery. Completed in 1908 by the Chinese and converted into a museum by the Soviets, the temple houses important Buddhist statues, including that of Sakyamuni and Choijin Lama made in the 18th century. The four-temple complex was occupied by the Mongolian Khan's brother, whose teacher was mummified and placed inside a statue here. With characteristic Chinese-style pointed roofs and one of the prayer halls in the shape of a yurt, the temple museum makes an interesting, serene escape from the city bustle.

Choijin Lama Temple Museum Reviews
It is really great museum. Actually, it is a temple with a lot of old, ancient artifacts. I was really enjoying the visit. I am glad that I did not miss this. more »
It was very close to our hotel so we could just walk over after checking in on our first day in UB. It was a good introduction to the traditional religious architecture of Mongolia. more »
The workers here were all very nice and polite and escorted us from building to building. They were able to answer our questions and were extremely hospitable. Thank you!
