When planning a monument to Genghis Khan (a title that means universal ruler) a quaint little flower garden or a statue in a park isn’t going to cut it.
To appropriately memorialise a man who, on horseback, founded an empire that covered one-fifth of the globe, you need something big. Gargantuan even.
So, kudos to the designers of the 40-metre high, stainless-steel equestrian statue of the G-man. Not only is it enormous, it also looks like it could spring to life, gallop across the Mongolian plains and trample its neighbours into dust.
I love historical accuracy.
I would love to visit here. I “nearly” ended up in Mongolia a few years back, but it didn’t quite happen. One for the bucket list. Niece piece!
Thanks! I’ve been wanting to visit for years but always put it off. There’s probably a lesson in that somewhere 🙂
What an amazing monument!
