Category:Armenian Highlands

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Articles relating to the Armenian Highlands, the most central and the highest of the three plateaus that together form the northern sector of Western Asia.[1]) Clockwise starting from the west, the Armenian Highlands are bounded by the Anatolian plateau, the Caucasus, the Kura-Aras lowlands, the Iranian Plateau, and Mesopotamia. The highlands are divided into western and eastern regions, defined by the Ararat Valley where Mount Ararat is located. Western Armenia is nowadays referred to as eastern Anatolia, and Eastern Armenia as the Lesser Caucasus or Caucasus Minor, and historically Anti-Caucasus,[2][3][4] meaning "opposite the Caucasus".
