Ulan-Bator, Gandan Monastery, Vegan Dinner

After checking in at the hostel and after a nice welcome breakfast we did some tasks (such as swapping .B rubles in Tugrik, …), we went to the nearby Gandan Monastery at noon. It is a temple complex where Buddhist sciences are taught. Janraisig College is home to the 26.5-metre-high statue of the goddess Janraisig. Today was probably a good day to get married. In front of the temple, the newlyweds and wedding parties queued up to take pictures!

Many guests had traditional clothes on! The children were also very sweetly cleaned out!

In the evening we were still eating vegan in the restaurant "Luna Blanca". Reiner had fried shiitake mushrooms on broccoli with rice and I cooked and fried vegan dumplings with chilli and horseradish sauce. I was absolutely surprised by Mongolia!
