Yeghipatrush (Armenian: Եղիպատրուշ, also Romanized as Eghipatrush; until 1945, Tanjrlu and Tamdzhirlu, from 1945-1992, Mravyan and Mrravyan) is a town in the Aragatsotn Province of Armenia. During the Soviet period, the town was renamed in honor of Askanaz Mravyan, Soviet Armenian Cultural Commissar. The town has a 10th- to 13th-century church of Surb Astvatsatsin. Some 100 meters beyond the church is an early cemetery with one corner of an allegedly 5th century basilica as well as a khachkar shrine.
