Azokh (Armenian: Ազոխ, Azerbaijani: Azıx) is a village in the Khojavend Rayon of Azerbaijan and Hadrut Province of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, and is situated on the small river Ishhanaget (Armenian: Իշխանագետ), near to the Azykh Cave.
Azokh was first mentioned in the fifth century during Vardan Mamikonian's rebellion against the Sasanian Empire in 451 and also during the Mongol invasions of Georgia and Armenia. Azokh was part of the Principality of Dizak from the 10th century until its dissolution in the late 18th century. In the early 19th century, immigrants from Karadag, Iran settled in the village. During the Nagorno-Karabakh War, the village was liberated by the Armenian Army and Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Army in 1993.
