Historically, the main region densely populated by Azerbaijanis Borchali is located in southeast Georgia and is officially called the Kvemo Kartli (Lower Kartli). In this province are administrative regions – Gardabani (historical name Garatepe) Marneuli (Sarwan), Bolnisi (Bolus Kepenekchi), Dmanisi (Bashkechid) Tetritskaro (Agbulag) Tsalka (Barmagsyz). According to a desk in the census in 1832 there were Borchali 145 settlements and 4092 at home, and the population was 3634 male Armenians, Greeks, 787, 669 Georgians, 213 Germans and 8479 Azerbaijanis. As you can see, most of the population the county was Azerbaijanis. It also notes the well-known Georgian writer and public figure Ilia. At 244 and 245-m room they published newspapers 'Iberia' for the 16-17 November 1890 in the 'Borchalos Mazra' ('Borchali County'), he wrote that almost 2 / 3 of the county are Borchali Azerbaijanis.

As published in Tiflis 'Caucasian calendar for 1907' observed rates in Borchali section 11 630, Ekaterinenfeldskom site (the current Bolnisi district) – 16 615 Loriskom – 1820, Trialeti – 12 435 Turks-Muslims. Some Georgian historians claim that the Turks Azerbaijanis in Georgia, first appeared in the XI century by the Seljuk invasion, and mass settlement related to the Safavid reign of Shah Abbas I in the XVII century. Distortion of History Turks Borchali settlement took place during the Soviet era and has become ideological and conceptual painting. What is the real story? – Asks the doctor of historical sciences Haleddin Ibrahimli. One of the auxiliary disciplines in the study of historical events is to place names, therefore, before proceeding to the exposition of the history of Borchali, we turn to these place names.
