Samux
Samukh (Azerbaijani: Samux, Самух, ساموخ) is a rayon of Azerbaijan. The administrative centre, also Samux, was formerly called Nəbiağalı and before that Safaraliyev. History[edit] The term Samukh comes from a Caucasian Albanian word for 'Forest Hunting Place'.[3] A related term, Samonis, is used to mark this area on Ptolemy's 2nd-century BC map of the Caucasus.[4] There are Bronze Age burial mounds around Samux Town. As an administrative unit, an entity known as Samukh Rayon was formed in 1930, centred on Garachayly settlement. However, in 1954, the construction of Mingechevir Hydro Power Plant rendered the region impractical as an administrative unit and Samukh Rayon was abolished, its territory thereafter falling within an expanded Safaraliyev Rayon. Safaraliyev Rayon had itself been detached from the Ganjabasar on January 24, 1940 by Decree №11 of the Supreme Soviet of the Azerbaijan SSR
