Year: 2008. Height: 40 meters.
In Tsonjin-Boldog region of Mongolia one can see the world's largest equestrian statue, the monument to Genghis Khan. Its height, excluding a pedestal, is 40 meters. The monument was opened in 2008. The sculpture is complemented with 36 columns that symbolize the Khans of the Mongol Empire, who ruled in the period from Genghis Khan to Ligden Borjigin Khan. It is important to note that the monument location was not chosen by chance. According to a legend, this is where Genghis Khan found the golden whip.
The two-storey pedestal attracts enormous interest. The monument is placed on the 10-meter high platform. The pedestal houses several important cultural and entertainment venues. There is a historical museum, an art gallery, as well as several restaurants and souvenir shops. In addition, all visitors have an opportunity to climb on a horse's head, which is set on an observation deck.
In the coming years, it is planned to convert the surrounding area into an amazing theme park. A tourist yurt, which will house the most appealing expositions, will be installed close to the monument. Passing from one tent to another, you can explore unusual collections of military accessories, handicrafts, shamanic attributes, and other antiquities that embody the culture of the once great Mongol Empire. In addition, it's planned to start an open-air theater in the park, as well as to create an artificial lake and a number of sports grounds. A lot of money has already been invested in the implementation of this ambitious project. Next - Christ The King
