The Battle of the Terek River was the second major battle of Tokhtamysh–Timur war. It took place at the Terek River, North Caucasus. Tokhtamysh cavalry attacked the right flank and the center of Timur's army. However, some Golden Horde emirs went over to Timur's side. This helped Timur defeat the left flank of Tokhtamysh's army and then the whole army itself. The victorious army of Timur pursued Tokhtamysh's, annihilating cities while staying on the Volga. The destroyed cities include Xacitarxan, Azaq, Majar, Sarai al-Jadid, Ukek.
