40 meter high statue of Chinggis Khaan unveiled last week PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 06 October 2008
Mongolian officials gathered last week for the unveiling of a 40 meter high statue of Chinggis Khaan on horseback in Tsonjin Boldog in Erdene soum of Tuv province last week. 

The statue is part of a complex of buildings built by architect D.Erdenebileg. The complex sits on the site where history says Chinggis Khaanfirst found the horsewhip in 1177 that would point him on his way to building an empire. 

D.Erdenebileg said much of the sponsorship for the program came from the assistance of MP Kh.Battulga. "If he had not supported the idea and not helped in its actualization, all our plans would have stayed in our mind," says Erdenebileg. 

Surrounding the statue are 36 columns. Also, visitors may go to the top of the statue top view the surrounding countryside.

Oh please, didn't Mongolia do anything before this guy, and haven't they done anything since? Yes, he was a great warlord, terrorist and rapist, but is Mongolia a one-trick pony?
