Aknaghbyur (Armenian: Ակնաղբյուր; until 1967, Nerkin Agdan and Nerkin Aghdan, Russified as Nizhniy Agdan, from 1967 to 1970, Morut) is a town in the Tavush Province of Armenia. Aknaghbyur was founded in 451 in honor of Vartan Mamikonian and is one of Armenia’s oldest rural communities.[1] In recent years, ArmeniaFund has launched and completed several vital projects on the infrastructure of the town, such as the construction of a gas pipeline and an irrigation system and the renovation of the drinking-water system.[1]
