Yulay is a nation on Roshar.


Yulay's territory primarily consists of a narrow strip of land between the southern shore of the Purelake and several mountainous areas. It borders Tu Bayla to the east and Babatharnam to the west. The southern border with Azir is mostly defined by mountains, with the exception of one large pass,[1] which has the towns of Benru and Berqq at the border.[2]

Other notable locations in Yulay are Yian Dion, Domistar, and Uarr Dion, all of which are on the shores of the Purelake.[2] Many unnamed rivers flow through Yulay and end in the Purelake.


During the Silver Kingdoms era, Yulay was part of Sela Tales.[3] After Sela Tales collapsed Yulay became an independent nation.

At some point after the Recreance people in Yulay began talking about the Knights Radiant and hoping they would return.[4]

Sigzil told stories about Yulay and other Selay areas to Bridge Four.[4]

During the True Desolation Yulay was attacked and conquered by a combination of Iriali and singers.


The people from Yulay are Selay and as such they likely have the skin ripples Selay people have. It’s possible they have shards as the Selay are known to have multiple sets.
