Günəşli (Armenian: Նորաշեն Norashen, 'New Village') is a village in the Khojavend Rayon of Azerbaijan and Hadrut Province of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.

History[edit]

During the Nagorno-Karabakh War, the village was destroyed by invading Soviet and Azeri forces and the Armenian villagers were forced to flee. The village was recaptured by the Armenian Army on October 2 1992. Since the end of the war the village has been rebuilt and in September 2006 a new school was built.
