In order to save the Kazan people, Suyumbeka agreed to the marriage, but at the same time asked for an unusual wedding gift - a tower. The tower was built in just seven days. After the tower was built, a grand wedding reception was held. At the wedding, Suyumbeka climbed to the top of the tower and overlooked her home city.
