Nor Kyurin (Armenian: Նոր Կյուրին, also Romanized as Nor Kurin) is a village in the Ararat Province of Armenia. Nor Kyurin means New Kyurin, pronounced [gjurin] or [gyrin] in Western Armenian. It was named after the city of Gürün, which is known as Gurin or Gyurin to Armenians (TAO: Կիւրին, RAO: Կյուրին) and had a significant Armenian population up until the Armenian genocide.
