This is a nice mausoleum if you want to pay respects to the great leader ghengis Khan. It's a beautiful building and you learn lots about his history.

Although a couple of hours out of Baotou it is well worth making the effort to visit. It is outstanding with a highlight being the Mongolian Horsemen providing demonstrations of their art.

The place is one hour driving from Oros and four hours from Hohhot, so yes it is far, but we loved the spot. Maybe we are kind of historians nerds, but it is nice to see his descendants coming every day to pay their tribute to the father of a nation. The place is a kind of museum, as no... More

History lovers will love it. However, non history lovers will find this place a bore as it's not conveniently located.

The mausoleum is not in a convenient location travel-wise and it certainly isn't informative or that interesting. If you really happen to be in the area, you might enjoy seeing the buildings and taking some pictures. I would rather spend my time in the desert when visiting Inner Mongolia.

Interesting memorial site dedicated to Genghiz Khan. If you love trivia or are a history buff, you will love this place. Lots of statues and exhibits, but nothing interactive. Colourful with great photo opportunities.

Its only a memorial site. The exact burial site is unknown. Interesting history and museum exhibits. We have a guide so is informative with murals depicting the life of Genghis Khan.
