|AREA IN THE LOWER COURSE OF THE BASUTAJUR
This area was annexed to Azerbaijan during the Soviet period.
It exactly coincides with the area of the Chavndur district established in the late Middle Ages. The majority of the villages situated in the valley are known only under their present Turkish names, given in the XVIII-XIX cent. The villages, which would have preserved their medieval names, are rare. The left bank of Basulajur is occupied by a number of villages, following each other at a close distance: Kollughshlagh, Berkni (Shataris), Meshadi-Ismayili, Shafibekli, Gharadara and Baharli. The right bank villages are Chinari (Ranjdara, Razdara), Top, Khndzer, Kotanlar Svajur (Sevajur), Ordakli and Gharagoz. Rather close to them arc the villages situated in the valley of Tzobajur - a tributary in the basin of Basutajur: Tzobi (Sobu), Torvanut (Tarvanot, Tarneyut), Gharashlar and Chopadara.
