The gigantic and growing Genghis.....
A massive statue of Mongolia's founder, Genghis Khan, is being built by a local business group on the outskirts of Ulan Bator.
Although Genghis Khan (more properly known as Chinggis Khan), is mainly thought of in negative terms in the West, he is one of history's more charismatic and dynamic leaders. During his lifetime, he conquered more territory than any other conqueror, and his successors established the largest contiguous empire in history. Even today his legacy continues in Asia, for without Genghis Khan there would not be a Mongolia.
The structure is expected to be completed next year.
