About Us

ULUKAYIN was created as a mythology page on social media on 12 June 2019. The project that grew by sharing short articles in categories such as archeology, folklore and history of art, was re-created as a website with the domain name “ulukayin.org” on September 27, 2021.

“ULUKAYIN” got its name from the tree of life in Turkic mythology. The word “ULU” means “great, grand, sublime, almighty” and “KAYIN” means “beech”.

Our aim is to inform people by publishing easy-to-read articles, interesting lists and fun quizzes in categories such as mythology, archaeology, folklore and history of art. Based on this, we briefly defined the ULUKAYIN as a “Cultural Anthology”. In order to become an international organization, we have decided to provide services in 13 languages (Danish, German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Swedish, Turkish, Russian) as of October 1, 2021. However, we ended our Russian services on May 2, 2022 due to low traffic.
