Gandantegchinlen Monastery is a Tibetan-style monastery in the Mongolian capital of Ulaan Baatar restored and revitalized since 1990. The Tibetan name translates to the "Great Place of Complete Joy". It currently has over 150 monks in residence. Gandantegchinlen Khiid monastery was closed in 1938, but reopened in 1944 and was allowed to continue as the only functioning Buddhist monastery as a token to traditional Mongolian culture and religion. With the end of Marxism in Mongolia in 1990 restrictions on worship were lifted.
