Manjusri Monastery (Manzushir Monastery) Tours

Manjusri Monastery (Manzushir Monastery)
Built in 1733 and dedicated to Manjusri as the permanent home of the Reincarnation of the Bodhisattva of Wisdom, the Manjusri Monastery (Manzushir Monastery) was once home to 20 temples and some 300 practicing monks. But this historic and cultural destination was among the hundreds of religious structures that were demolished during communist rule in the 1930s.

Visitors can check out the monastery ruins, located in an open space outside the city, and tour the reconstructed museum that showcases the religious structure in its original integrity. The Togchin temple ruins, which were built in the mid-1700s, as well as a massive two-ton bronze cauldron are also located nearby.

The Manjusri Monastery (sometimes written Mandshir Khiid: Khiid is Mongolian for monastery) is an ideal stop for travelers who want to learn more about the history and culture of Mongolia’s diverse people, and perfect for exploring as part of a day tour of Ulaanbaatar.

Practical Info

The monastery is located 15 kilometers outside of Ulaanbaatar on the south side of Bogd Khan Uul Mountain.
Address: Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia
