IT’S ON THE LIST: Chinggis Khaan Statue Complex, Mongolia

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.
