Photos from Ulaan Bataar including the National Gallery and the Memorial Museum of Victims of Politcal Repression.
In 1937 Mongolia was run as a Soviet puppet state and Stalin launched purges with brutal ferocity that resulted in the closure and destruction of more than 700 monasteries and the death of more than 30,000 people.
Oddly enough, the purges were implemented by Mongolia's now controversial leader Choibalsan. His statue remains in front of the Mongolia University and is shown in the photos above.
