Karmirgyugh (Armenian: Կարմիրգյուղ; meaning Red Village; also Romanized as Karmir Gyukh; until 1940 Kulali and Ghulali; also Gyukh) is a major village in the Gegharkunik Province of Armenia. The village was founded in 1831 by emigrants from Beyazid. It has two old churches of S. Astvatsatsin and S. Grigor, in ruins with khachkars, and was the discovery site of a boundary stone of King Artashes, inscribed in Aramaic. Urartian ruins are also nearby.
