  Sukhbaatar Square
by sachara
 
 

In the centre of Ulaanbaatar lays the the Sukhbaatar Square, also simply known as the Square.
Damdiny Sukhbaatar, ''hero of the revolution'', declared in 1929 at this place the final independence of China. At the square which bears his name is also his imposing statue, sitting on his horse. His in 1929 proclaimed words are engraved on the bottom of the statue.
At the background in front of the State Parliament House you can see a mausoleum built in 1921, which may (or may not) contain the remains of the two communist heroes, Sukhbaatar and Choibalsan.
