Chatili Duz

Chatili Duz was a village in the territory of the Zangezur uezd of the former Yelizavetpol (Ganja) governorate, later in the former Gafan district, and present-day Syunik province. It was located near the village of Okhdar.

The village was inhabited by 19 Azerbaijanis in 1897. The village was devastated as a result of massacre caried out by Armenian armed units in 1905–1906.

The toponym was coined by combining the word “chat” meaning “a spur of a mountain, a ravine” with the identifying suffix “-li” and the word “duz” meaning “without a slope, a level relief ”. The toponym means “a village built on a level site near a ravine”.
