The Khalkh Gol River Monuments, situated in eastern Mongolia, are approximately 360 kilometers away from Choibalsan town in Dornod province and 1040 kilometers from UB (Ulaanbaatar). These monuments and war memorials were erected to honor the Mongolian and Russian soldiers who tragically lost their lives during the battle against Japan in 1939. Khalkhiin Gol, the name of the site, is derived from the Khalkh River that flows through it.

One notable monument is the Victory Monument, named Yalaltiin Khushuu. Among the various monuments, this one stands as the tallest and largest. It was built on the Khamar mountain pass, just outside of Khalkh Gol town, where the intense battle took place. Constructed in 1984 to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the Khalkh Gol River battle victory, this copper statue measures 54 meters in height and 33 meters in width.

Another significant monument is dedicated to M.P. Yakolev, the tank brigade commander, and his troops who emerged victorious in the Bayantsagaan range battle of Khalkh Gol in 1939. A tank monument stands on a pedestal as a tribute to their triumph.

If you are interested in delving into the historical aspects of the Khalkhiin Gol war, I highly recommend a visit to the museum located in Khalkh Gol town. The Yalaltiin Museum provides an opportunity to explore various war tools, photographs, battle maps, tombs, boards of honor, and even features a diorama of the site.

Throughout the Khalkh Gol valley, you can find numerous war hero monuments, such as the Yeren Baatariin Khushuu/Ninety Hero Memorial and Nayan Baatariin Khushuu/Ninety Hero Memorial, paying tribute to the brave individuals who fought during the war.

As you explore the battlefield, you will come across poignant reminders of the past in the form of bomb marks and unearthed bomb holes. These serve as poignant reminders of the soldiers who lost their lives in bomb attacks, and a statue has been erected to honor their sacrifice.
