It was founded during the time of the Shoon Imperium (27–450 DR), when Ilmatari missionaries of the Order of St. Uzurr traveled from Calimshan to Lapaliiya. On a hilltop west of the Lapal Way, they constructed a walled monastery with a cloister, named the Cloister of St. Uzurr after their patron saint. In the following centuries, a city grew up around the monastery, which became known simply as "Uzurr".
A member of the Order was a spy working for the yuan-ti House Eselemas and reported on Kadar's research into curing tainted ones and broodguards. In response, yuan-ti purebloods began infiltrating Uzurr on Eleasias 1, the Year of Rogue Dragons, 1373 DR, with the aim of assassinating Kadar.
