Dzyunashogh (Armenian: Ձյունաշող, also romanized as Dzunashogh) is a town in the Lori Province of Armenia. Until 1989 it was known as Kizil Shafaq (Golden Dawn) and predominantly populated by ethnic Azerbaijanis. Between May and July 1989 the Azerbaijani population of Kizil Shafaq effected an unusual village exchange with the then-Armenian population of Kerkenj in Azerbaijan.[1][2]
