Photographer's Note

Genghis Khan Statue is a 131 foot (40 meters) tall, stainless steel statue of Genghis Khan on horseback, on the bank of the Tuul River 54 km from Mongolian capital Ulaanbaatar, where according to legend, he found a golden whip. The statue is symbolically pointed east towards his birthplace. It is on top of the Genghis Khan Statue Complex, a visitor center, itself 10 meters (33 ft) tall, with 36 columns representing the 36 khans from Genghis to Ligdan Khan. It was designed by sculptor D. Erdenebileg and architect J. Enkhjargal and erected in 2008.

Visitors walk to the head of the horse through its chest and neck, where they have a panoramic view. The cost of the complex is reported to be US$ 4.1 million, spent by The Genco Tour Bureau, a Mongolian company.
