Always good to brush up on my Mongolian every once in a while. I get rusty.

Later, Urgoo (means palace) had been devel­oping as Zanabazar’s reputation and influence grew in the Mongolian social life.

I wonder what “Urgoo” might translate to in English. Is it a typical theater name such as “Palace” or “Strand” or a street name or the name of a theater chain?
