Khövsgöl Park


This dusty park consists of a giant map of Khövsgöl aimag with each sum (district) represented by a bit of public artwork that ranges from appealingly kitschy to kind of terrifying (examples include concrete dead-eyed goats, murals, and crumbling statues with faces marred by exposed rebar). A large Buddha statue, donated by South Koreans, is located nearby, as is a small amusement park for the kids.
