Hrazdan (Armenian: Հրազդան գետ) is a major river in Armenia. It starts at the northwest extremity of Lake Sevan and flows south through the Kotayk Province and Armenia's capital, Yerevan. In the Ararat plain it joins the Aras River along the border with Turkey. A series of hydro-electric plants have been constructed on the river. Its waters are in demand to irrigate crops.
