The Mongolic peoples were for many centuries a nomadic confederation, organized in clans and dwelling in portable ger (yurt) camps. Ulaanbaatar was established in 1639 as Orgoo (Urga), a moveable yurt city and seat of the first Jebtsundamba Khutughtu, the spiritual leader (Lama) of the Gelug lineage of Tibetan Buddhism in Mongolia. The mobile monastery-town was often moved to various places until 1778 when the city moved from Khui Mandal to its current location.
