Zaritap (Armenian: Զառիթափ; also Romanized as Zarrit’ap’ and Zarritap; formerly Azizbekov, Pashalu and Pashaghu) is a village in the Vayots Dzor Province of Armenia. For a time the village was renamed in honor of Meshadi Azizbekov, an early Bolshevik and one of the 26 Baku Commissars. In the vicinity are 13th-century khachkars and the traces of an old fort.
