    ►After lunch, we visit National History Museum and do exploring around Sukhbaatar square
    (Museum: Mongolia’s wonderful National Museum sweeps visitors from the Neolithic era right to the present day. It’s UB's only genuine blockbuster sight, offering an unparalleled overview of Mongolian culture, ranging from stone-age petroglyphs and exquisite gold ornamentation to, arguably the highlight, the full gamut of traditional ceremonial costume – which unmistakably inspired the look of characters from the Star Wars prequels.)

    (Square: In July 1921 in the centre of Ulaanbaatar, Damdin Sukhbaatar (the ‘hero of the revolution’) declared Mongolia’s final independence from China. A square later built on the spot now bears his name and features at its centre a bronze statue of the revolutionary astride his horse. In 2013 the city authorities changed the name of the plaza to Chinggis Khaan Sq, but in 2016 Sukhbaatar's descendants won a court battle to restore the original name.)

At a height of 1,751 metres (1,09 miles). They form a granite canyon erected in the heart of the steppe. The erosion polished the rock faces of the cliffs.

You may manage to see on the rock the inscriptions written by two venerated monks who lived there in the 19th century. We can visit the site the ruins of an old temple dating from the 17th century.

Located at the foothills of a mountain covered of pines, this rocky formation is incontestably a photo opportunity while you’re on the road for Terelj.)

(Aryabal is a Buddhist God who listens to all the prayers of humankind and releases humankind from suffering. It was built in the shape of an elephant’s head. The number 108 is an auspicious number in Buddhism. Therefore the stairs leading to the temple consist of 108 steps and symbolizes the elephant’s elongated trunk.
