Dash Keyti

Dash Keyti was a village in the territory of the Novo-Bayazid uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Basarkechar (Vardenis) district, and present-day Gegharkunik province. It was located 3 km to the south of the village of Dashkend. The village was inhabited only by 124 Azerbaijanis in 1831. The Azerbaijanis were driven out from the village between the 1850s and 1860s, and the settlement was abolished. At present, the village is in ruins.

The toponym was coined from the words “dash” meaning “a mountain, a rock” and “ket” meaning in Turkic “end, back, a rear part”.
