This Friday’s challenge is a photo of an unidentified place somewhere in the world. Can you tell us where the photo was taken? Leave your guess in the comments below — and check back on Tuesday to see if you were right!

Hint: This memorial with stunning panoramic views resides in the largest city along the Tuul River. Can you name the city and country? (Bonus for the memorial.)

Enter your guess in the comments below. You have until Monday, August 18, at 11:59 p.m. ET to post your response. We’ll keep all comments private until then. On Tuesday morning we’ll choose one winner at random to receive an IndependentTraveler.com travel mug. Note: Although all are welcome to play, we can only ship prizes to the Continental U.S.

Editor’s Note: This contest has ended. The winner is Paula Roberts, who correctly guessed that this week’s mystery location was the Zaisan Memorial in Ulan Bator, Mongolia. Paula has won an IndependentTraveler.com travel mug. Congratulations! Stay tuned for more chances to win.
