For Bashkortostan, Salavat Yulaev is not just a hero, but an embodiment of honor, valor and the best qualities of a man, a twenty-year-old boy became the head of the army and a legendary man. There is no data on Salavat Yulaev's childhood years. Even the date of his birth was not known, and the date of June 16 was accepted conditionally.
It is known from interrogations of the national hero that he was born in Tekeevo village, Ufa province, Siber road. At present this settlement does not exist, as it was destroyed by state troops during the suppression of the Pugachev riot. Salavat was not from a poor family, as his father was a centurion in the Russian army, and then appointed chief of parish. Aznalin was an excellent soldier and during the campaign to Poland was awarded a small military banner. Back in 1773, his father handed over the award to Yulaev, who replaced his absent father in the post of petty officer.
From his father Salavat took over the selfless love for his native land and intolerance for any injustice. In autumn 1773, 1200 Salavat cavalrymen took the side of the rebels, and Salavat himself became a symbol of the struggle of the Bashkir land against expansion and oppression. Of course, the army of Salavat could not fight against the glorious royal commanders, so in the autumn of 1774, Salavat Yulaev disbanded his fighters at home and wanted to go to the Kazakh steppes, but was betrayed and captured by the chasteners. The rest of his life the hero will spend at the penal colony in Rogervik fortress.
Yulayev is known to contemporaries not as an outstanding military leader, but as a poet who wrote improvisations. He dedicated his creations to his Motherland and Muslims, nature and belief in the best, but they did not reach us. Our district is named after Salavat Yulayev, and many objects in the geopark are somehow or other related to the hero's name, such as Salavat Rock, Salavat Cave, Salavat Spring and many other places. And in the place of the hero's home village Tekeevo there is a stone yurt and a cenotaph.
