Stop At: Choijin Lama Temple Museum, Ulaanbaatar

This temple museum is a hidden gem of architecture and history situated in the middle of downtown Ulaanbaatar. It was the home of Luvsan Haidav Choijin Lama ("Choijin" is an honorary title given to some monks), the state oracle and brother of the Bogd Khan. Construction of the monastery commenced in 1904 and was completed four years later. It was closed in 1938 and probably would have been demolished had it not been saved in 1942 to serve as a museum demonstrating the "feudal" ways of the past. Although religious freedom in Mongolia liberated in 1990, this monastery is no longer an active place of worship.
