Tabriz, the capital of Eastern Azarbaijan Province, is situated at an elevation of 1340 (38° 4' N / 46° 25' E). The city is about 2054 square kilometers in area, and borders on Urumia Lake on northeast, and is located within 619 km west of Tehran, the capital of Islamic Republic of Iran. Population of the city is estimated to be 1,300,000. Tabriz is surrounded by lone-standing, towering mountains of Sahand and Own-ibne-Ali (locally pronounced Einali) on northeast and south, respectively.
Talkheroud (Ajichai) which flows across the north and northeast of province floods its way through the relatively vast meadow and pours down into Urumia Lake. Another river, Mehranrood, rolls through the city dividing it into the southern and northern halves.
