Sacred Destinations: Megjid Janraiseg Temple

Megjid Janraiseg Temple was built in 1911-1912 to celebrate the end of Manchu domination and, it is said, to heal the Bogd Gedeen from blindness. It is in a mixed Chinese and Tibetan style and inside is the 25.6 meter and 20 ton Avalokiteshvara-Janraiseg statue. The deity was consecrated in 1996, is hollow and contains a storehouse of precious items including sutras, medicinal herbs, bundles of Buddhist mantras and even fully furnished ger. The place is breathtaking and when you see the statue you get such a comfort feeling of peace.
