Dashchoilin monastery

200

This monument is one of the 3 remaining monasteries of its type in Mongolia. Originally built on another location in 1890, it used to be an important religious place in Ulaanbaatar, with a capacity of 100 to 600 lamas or monks inside of its walls, this monastery stopped its activity and has been destroyed in 1938 under governmental pressure.

It is now located in the Sukhbaatar district, 8th subdistrict, very close to the Embassy of China, and near Baga toiruu street from where you can see the colorful roofs of the monastery. It is definitely a peaceful place to have rest.
