His face can be found on everyday commodities, from liquor bottles to candy products, and on bank notes.

Chinggis Khaan Statute complex is situated 54 km from Ulaanbaatar City, with the view of beautiful natural scenery on the bank of the Tuul River, a historical place where Chinggis khan’s golden whip was found.
