Kahat (Juhash: Kahat [kɒ.hɒt], also [kɒ.vɒt]) is the capital and largest city of Juhashka as well as one of its 26 provinces. It is located on the banks of the Ka River in east central Juhashka.

Originally founded by Nivoic tribes in XXXX, Kahat was already a major settlement when it was conquered by the Sunrise Horde in XXXX. It served as the capital of the Galkhai Dynasty from XXXX to XXXX, and as the capital of the Sunrise Kingdom of the Juhash from 1721 to 1922. Following the Balkist Revolution, the capital was moved west to Täräbit and would not return to Kahat until after the Silent Revolution in 1986.

Etymology

The name Kahat is of Kasel origin: Ka, referring to the Ka River, with the suffix -hat, commonly used in Kasel placenames. Kahat thus translates to "settlement on the Ka River".

History

Evidence of human settlement in the region can be traced back to the Circular Grave culture around 8000 BCE.
