On my way to Tibet it was interesting to visit the monasteries in Mongolia and to discover that the links between Mongolia and Tibet are old and deep. Once in a lifetime every Buddhist Mongolian tries to reach the holy city of Lhasa on a pilgrimage. When the British invaded Tibet in 1903, the Dalai Lama fled to Mongolia for his safety and stayed there a few years.
The Gandan Monastery is a large complex with several temples, a library and living quarters for the monks.
Directions: 1,5 KM north west of the Square
