History of Magas
The name “Magas” was decided to give the new capital of Ingushetia on the initiative of the famous historian of Ingushetia, Nurdin Kodzoev, based on scientific historical, archaeological and linguistic data, according to which the capital of ancient Alanya was called the medieval multi-ethnic state in the North Caucasus, which two thousand years ago, the Alans settled - the ancestors of modern Ingush, Balkars, Karachais and Ossetians. In addition, the word "Magas" is of Ingush origin and translates as "City of the sun."
The first stone of the construction of the modern city of Magas was laid by the first President of Ingushetia, Ruslan Aushev, 23 February, 1994. And 15 on April 1994, the President of the Russian Federation, Boris N. Yeltsin, signed the Decree “On the construction of the capital of the Republic of Ingushetia”. This day is celebrated annually as the “Day of the City of Magas”.
