Megjid Janraisig
Ulaanbaatar

The Megjid janraisig statue was built to commemorate the independence from China proclaimed on 16 december 1911. Unfortunately, the magnificent Megjid Janraisig Sum, among other monasteries and temples, was destroyed during the communist purges of the late 1930-s. The huge Megjid Janraisig statue and the temple were restored and opened to the public view in 1996. The statue is 26.5 meters high, and weights 90 tons. 8.6kg of gold, 25kg of silver, 20 tons of copper, 27tons of steel, 15 tons of chalk, 30 tons of cement and 2100 precious stones were used to make it.

186 precious stones decorate the head of the statue. 1000 small statues of Ayush god were made to sit aside. Following the religious architectural code 2 stone lions to protect the god were made and put in front.

People’s donations, grants from foreign countries and state contributions made it possible to unveil the statue of Megjid janraisig: the Lord who looks in every direction.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
