History

It was founded in the 1930s as the first gold prospecting center in the region[ citation needed ] and was granted urban-type settlement status in 1937. [2] The surrounding territory was separated out of Ust-Maysky District in 1940 as Allakh-Yunsky District, with the administrative center in Allakh-Yun. In 1948, the administrative center was moved to Eldikan and in 1953, the district was merged back into Ust-Maysky District. With the cessation of mining activities in the 1990s, almost the entire population left.

Administrative and municipal status

Within the framework of administrative divisions, the urban-type settlement of Allakh-Yun [1] is incorporated within Ust-Maysky District as the Settlement of Allakh-Yun. [2] Within the framework of municipal divisions, Allakh-Yun is located on the intersettlement territory of Ust-Maysky Municipal District. [4]
