Aghnjadzor (Armenian: Աղնջաձոր; also Romanized as Agndzhadzor; formerly Akhkend and Aghkend) is a village in the Vayots Dzor Province of Armenia. One kilometer north of the village is the site of the notable Lernantsk Caravanserai, appearing east of the road like a half-buried Quonset hut. It was built at approximately the same period as the Selim Caravanserai but is smaller in size and more crudely built. Four km north are the ruins of Kapuyt Berd ("Blue Fortress").
