History of Tayshet

It was founded as a small settlement of Tayshet in 1897 and named after its location on River Tayshet (the right inflow of Biryusa), which means a cold river in the Ket language.

Its favourable location by the railroad and a big river determined the role of Tayshet as an administrative and shopping center. It has been a town since 1938.
