Notes :
According Rinchen’s map, Oidoviin khural was situated within the same enclosure as the Assembly of Dagva zodoch (NOT in Rinchen 951 UBNR 951). The two buildings were located in the south-west quarter (Baruun ömnöd khoroo) of the city, where laymen lived. The map marks it on the present Seoul Street near Natsagdorj library, to the south of Nartad Daginiin khural (Damdin lamiin khural, UBR 916 Rinchen 916) and Dar’ ekhiin khural (UBR 917 Rinchen 917). According to Dashtseren lama, the Assembly of Dagwa zodoch was situated near the present Lenin Club, south of Sükhbaatar Square, north of Choijin lamiin süm. However, Rinchen’s map marks the two assemblies on the present Seoul Street between the State Drama Theatre and Natsagdorj library. According to Pürew (Mongol töriin golomt, p. 60.) the Lenin Club (currently known as the Sanktpeterburg Club) was built in 1929, to the north of Choijin lamiin süm, on a site where there was a building used by a lama who was a friend of Choijin lama. The structure was pulled down to build the Club. Dashtseren lama did not know any details about the practice or size of this assembly. The word oidow (TIB: dngos-grub, SKRT: siddhi) means accomplishment, magical powers, realization or attainment. Presumably, Oidow is the name of a person who was the head or leader of the assembly.
