Etymology[edit]

The name of the city is originated from Bashkir/Tatar words and means "a beautiful lake".[citation needed]

History[edit]

Founded in 1736 as a fortress on the border between Russian and Bashkir lands, it later grew into a large Cossack stanitsa.[citation needed] The fortress was founded with the permission of Bashkir Tarkhan Taymas Shaimov, who was the owner of these lands.
