Haghartsin (Armenian: Հաղարծին); is a village in the Tavush Province of Armenia. It was founded in 1815 as Jarkhech by Prince Jar Artsruni. In 1940, the village was renamed Kuybyshev after the Soviet politician Valerian Kuybyshev.[1] In 1992, the village was renamed Haghartsin, after the Haghartsin Monastery which is located around 8 km northwest of the village.
