Friendship Monument

Friendship Monument information

Lonely Planet review

This communist monument, about 200m northeast of the Selenge Hotel, is worth a quick look. On the way from the town centre you pass a fine Marx mural and the ever-recognisable Lenin's profile bolted to the wall. Head north of the Friendship Monument into the hills above town for good views of the city. Around 400m east of the monument you'll find Erdenet's shiny new Buddha statue .
