Dear Raju!
Karabakh word consists of two parts. Kara is a Turkish word meaning great, and bakh - the garden. This is a wonderful area, which is on the territory of Azerbaijan.

I do not speak any Turkish, and there may be other meanings, but I believe the word kara means black. I know that from a popular Greek shadow-puppet, Karaghiozis, whose name is Turkish (Karagioz meaning black eye or dark eye)

About Karabakh, here is a short summary from Wikipedia:
Karabakh is a geographic region in present-day southwestern Azerbaijan and eastern Armenia. The word "Karabakh" is generally believed to originate from Turkic and Persian, literally meaning "black garden".

"Kara" - possibly one of the most frequent common Turk space for ambiguous words. Here are some of its values??, "chief", "great", "great", "powerful", "north / north", "earth", "land", "firmament" (in starotyurkskom had the same meaning "stone") , "black", "dark". With regard to natural objects or phenomena - a river, lake, winter, snow - "kara" acquires meaning "stormy", "deep", "cold".
