Davtashen (Armenian: Դավթաշեն (Davt'ashen); also, Davitashen and Davidashen) is a district of Yerevan, the capital of Armenia. It is located at the northwestern part of the city, on the right bank of Hrazdan River. It is bordered by the Arabkir District from the south and east and the Ajapnyak District from the south and the west. Kotayk Province forms the northern border of the district.[1]

The district is unofficially divided into smaller neighborhoods including the Davtashen blocks, Northern Davtashen and Huysi Avan. The district is home to the Araks Factory for Commutative Technology.
