Karadam

Karadam

 

an ancient Azerbaijani dwelling, with a wooden roof in the form of a stepped arch. In Armenia such a structure was called a glkhatun; in Georgia, a darbazi. The karadam was common primarily in the Lesser Caucasus, including Nagornyi Karabakh. In some regions these dwellings are still in existence.
