History of the Vouni:

Vouni’s have huge historical importance due to its controversial and obscure nature of the region of Yesilirmak. The original name of the region is known to no individual around the region.

The modern name of the village Yesilirmak has the merely meaning of “mountain” in Greek. It represents the location of the region and representing the major soundness of the region.

Most of the historians trace back the linkage of the village Yedidalga to about 480 BC. And it considers that there is a probability that the palace was first built around 480 BC by a pro-Persian king of Marion. As an outpost to stop the movement of the pro-Athenian Soli as the result of the wakening of the individuals and creating of a failed revolt.

Historians basically trace the village to about 400 BC. But the place was considered to be destroyed by some unknown agents as a result of the war. And the region was again built in the year 480 BC by the ruler of that time. However, the destroying and rebuilding of the region had a major effect on the cultural difference of the area. Which then became a combination of two cultures.
