Sabirabad is a rayon of Azerbaijan whose capital, the city of Sabirabad, lies at the junction of the Araz and Kura rivers. The low-lying area is dependent on canals and dams whose damage during 2010 caused waters from Lake Sarisu to flood several of the region's villages.[4][5]


The rayon is located in the south of Mugan plain.[6] Rayon borders upon Kurdamir Rayon in the north for a distance of 30 km, Shamakhi Rayon in the north-west for a distance of 5 km, Shirvan city in the south for a distance of 24 km, Salyan Rayon in the south-west for a distance of 48 km, Bilasuvar Rayon in the south for a distance of 18 km, Saatly Rayon in the east for a distance of 136 km and Imishli Rayon for a distance of 8 km. Its length from the north to the south is 66 km, and from the east to the west is 24 km. A part of the rayon’s territory is on the right coast of the Kura River, in Shirvan plain.[7]
