The Monastery of Choijin Lama.
The beautiful Buddhist temple museum is located in the middle of downtown Ulaanbaatar between skyscrapers. It was the home of Luvsan Haidav Choijin Lama the state oracle and brother of the Bogd Khan. Construction of the monastery commenced in 1904 and was completed four years later. It was closed in 1938 and probably would have been demolished had it not been saved in 1942 to serve as a museum demonstrating the ‘feudal’ ways of the past. The temple is no longer active monastery serves as museum. There are five temples within the ground. Each exhibiting wonderfully sculpted and richly decorated statues, masks and many pricelessly religious artefacts.

Dinosaurs of all shapes, sizes and appetites once roamed Gobi desert. Their fossilised bones and eggs were first discovered by American explorer Roy Chapman Andrews in the 1920s. Today you can come face-to-skull with some of the best examples of Mongolian dinosaur fossils in the Central Museum of Mongolian dinosaurs. The key piece of the museum is a 4m tall, 3 tonne, and flesh eating Tyrannosaurs Rex. This particular specimen made international headline in 2012 when it was sold for over 1 million at an auction in the USA. The Mongolian government protested that the fossil had been illegally smuggled out of Mongolia and demanded its return. The legal battle ended a US judge ruled in favour of Mongolia. The smaller dinosaur next to T-Baatar is Saurolophus with its distinctive cranial crest. The museum also includes examples of Velociraptors, Protoceratops, and a nest of Oviraptor eggs. The museum is still small and bit limited in specimen. However all exhibits are original fossils.
