Daşduz (also, Dashduz and Dash-duz) is a settlement in the municipality of Nakhchivan in Nakhchivan City, Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic, Azerbaijan. It is located 12 km in the south-west from the Nakhchivan city, on the foothill area. There is no permanent population.[1]

Etymology[edit]

The name of the Daşduz settlement made out from the component of the Turkic words of Daş (the rock, stone) and duz (salt) means "the rock-salt". The settlement was so named because the rock-salt mine of Nakhchivan is located in this territory.[2]
