Map of Armenia

Armenia (Hayastan) is an ancient country dating back to antiquity, approximately 1000-600 BC.  Armenia is geographically located in the South Caucasus region of Eurasia and is bordered by Turkey, Georgia, Iran and Azerbaijan.

In Armenia, the Tandoor is called Tonir and was originally designed by ancient Armenians to resemble and symbolize the sun deity of their Pagan culture at the time.

The Tonir in the ancient Armenian kingdom was a staple of every household and found commonly in the center of the house, acting as a form of heat delivery and Tandoor cooking method.

It is, therefore, no surprise that one of the most renown and popular Armenian culinary contributions Lavash is cooked inside the Tonir.

In 2014, the United Nations body UNESCO inscribed Lavash into their list of intangible cultural heritage of humanity.
