'''Aji Chay''' ({{lang-az|آجی چای}}, {{lang-fa|تلخه رود}}), or '''Talkheh-Rūd''', is a river in north-western [[Iran]]. Most of it is situated in the [[East Azerbaijan Province]].
 
Its water is [[alkali]] due to passing from the lands with high mineralization. It is the largest river that discharges into [[Lake Urmia]]. It arises above [[Sarab, East Azerbaijan|Sarab]] from the slopes of [[Mount Bozgush]] and [[Sabalan|Mount Sabalan]]. Its tributary, the sweet water [[Quri River|Quri River (Ghouri or Meydan Chayi)]], joins the Aji just northeast of central [[Tabriz]].
 
The Iranian government has a project under development to put the water to agricultural use by altering the watercourse of the Aji Chai away from the alkali lands. As part of this project, the Madani dam is being constructed on the Aji Chai on the northeast side of [[Eynali|Eynali mountain]], which lies to the northeast of [[Tabriz]].
