Khaldi (god)

"Khaldi" (also written as Haldi) is the supreme god of the Urartians.

Khaldi formed a triad with Theispas (also written as Tesheba) and Artinis. His consort was the goddess Bagvarti. The Urartians regarded him as their ancestor. Khaldi's main temple was built in the ancient city of Musasir, southwest of Lake Urmia.
