    • found: Wikipedia, May 12, 2014 (Ulan Bator; or Ulaanbaatar (Mongolian: Улаанбаатар = Ulaanbaatar, literally "Red Hero"; Ulaganbagatur); capital and largest city of Mongolia; 47°55ʹN 106°55ʹE; before 1911, the official name was Ikh Khüree or Daa Khüree, or simply Khüree. Upon independence in 1911, with both the secular government and the Bogd Khan's palace present, the city's name changed to Niĭslel Khüree. It is called Bogdiin Khuree in the folk song "Praise of Bogdiin Khuree". In western languages, the city at that time was most often referred to as Urga. When the city became the capital of the new Mongolian People's Republic in 1924, its name was changed to Ulan Bator (Улаанбаатар, Ulaanbaatar, classical Mongolian Ulaganbagatur, literally "Red Hero").)
