Tajura (Arabic: تاجوراءTāğūrā’), an aa spelt Tajoura, is a ceety in Libie, in the Tripoli Destrict (Tarabulus Destrict),[2] on the Mediterranean coast fowerteen km east o Tripoli.[3] Tajura wis the centre o Libyae's nuclear research, wi a 10 megawatt reactor, biggit bi the Soviet Union, which came online in 1981.[4]

History[eedit | eedit soorce]

The Ottoman Turks established a base at Tajura in 1531.[5] Unner the command o Khayr al-Din, the site wis selectit for its proximity tae Tripoli which haed come unner the Knights o Maltae in 1530 when Charles V o Spain, as Keeng o Sicily, haed gien them Tripoli, Gozo an Malta. Tripoli wis captured in the Siege o Tripoli (1551).

Name[eedit | eedit soorce]

Legend haes it that the ceety is cried "Tajura" acause a lang time ago, a bonnie queen uised tae rule Tajura an her name wis Ura, an she haed a jeweled croun, which wis cried a taj in Arabic. Ane day, this queen lost her taj, an she ordered her fowk tae leuk for it. Her fowk stairtit tae leuk for her taj bi sayin whaur is taj Ura, an thay niver foond it, but the ceety wis named efter the searchers' cry: "Tajura". A less whimsical suggestion o oreegin is that the ceety wis cried taj acause it wis lik a croun on the bluff abuin the sea.

Frae 2001 tae 2007 Tajura wis in an the caipital o the Tajura Wa Al Nawahi AlArba' Destrict.
