Tegh (Armenian: Տեղ) is a village and rural community (municipality) in the Syunik Province of Armenia. The National Statistical Service of the Republic of Armenia (ARMSTAT) reported its population was 2,520 in 2010,[1] up from 2,333 at the 2001 census.[2]

Of significance in Tegh, just a few miles from the Karabagh (Artsakh) border, are the dozens of visible caves. The village is underlaid by a soft stone layer of porous rock, replete with rows of caves that were once used for human habitation, now largely for animals. There are also some very large ones facing the highway M12. Rows of them are visible from the highway while driving east.
