Ortaköy is a village in the district of Uludere in Şırnak province, Turkey. Ortaköy is 55 kilometres (34 mi) away from the district of Uludere and it is located in southeastern Turkey, just on the western border of the Hakkari province. Historically, it was located in the Assyrian region of Hakkari.
The village used to be an ancient Assyrian tribe, part of Assyria, called Ārosh Taxtayta (Lower Arosh) within the historical Assyrian district of Tyari and was populated by Assyrian people up until Seyfo in 1914. The Assyrian village Ārosh Alayta (Upper Arosh), now named Yukariarus, in Hakkari, is less than 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) away, closely bordering the province of Sirnak. Halmon is around 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) to the northeast in Andaç and Gérāmon to the northwest, just right next to Halmon. Assyrian inhabitants of these proximate villages have ever since intermixed.
