Ttujur (Armenian: Թթուջուր), is a village in the Gegharkunik Province of Armenia. It is home to the medieval "Kotrats Church" and the nearby ruined settlement of Tsak Kar.

On May 6, 2010, the "Monument of Glory and Immortality" was erected in the village dedicated to the German-Soviet War, where 61 Armenians form Ttujur were killed during World War II. The ceremony was conducted within the frames of the 65th anniversary of the Soviet victory over the Nazi Germans. The inauguration ceremony was attended by the Russian ambassador to Armenia.[1]
