Etymology

The name comes from Persian باغچه سرای bāghche-sarāy which means the Garden Palace. Its former name was Müküs, derived from Armenian Mokkʿ (Armenian: Մոկք) region. The Armenian name of the city is Armenian: Մոկս, Moks. In Kurdish: Miks‎, derived from Armenian. The word Mokk' in classical Armenian language means: the place of the magic. According to the legend, Amenap'rkich (Wholly Saviour) abbey that was nearby Moks, has a grave of some magician by name Gaspar. Probably name of the place of the magic or just Mokk' connected with this mysterious personality. But scientific sources say that in Urartu era existed Moxene tribe and Moxenne, Mokk', Moks names are origined from this tribe's name.

The word Bahçesaray is compound of bahçe (garden) and saray (palace). Bakhchysarai in Crimea has the same name.

History
