Gandan Monastery is the largest and most important monastery in Mongolia. It is situated at the end of Ondor Geegen Zanabazaryn Gudamj and is open from 9am to 9pm every day. Supposedly there is no entrance fee but as a foreigner I was asked to make a 'donation'. There is a charge for photography inside the temple. There are lots of souvenir shops outside the monastery gates where you can buy religious souvenirs.
