Admire the 20-ton gilded statue of “the Lord Who Looks in Every Direction”

Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

Spend some time at the Gandan Monastery, originally founded in 1838; the temple houses a 20-ton gilded statue of “the Lord Who Looks in Every Direction,” created in the 1990s to replace the one destroyed by the Soviets in 1937.
