Nerkin Dzhrapi (also, Chirpili, Jrapi, and Dzhrapi) is a former town in the Shirak Province of Armenia which was intentionally flooded by the Akhurian reservoir. It contained an 11th-century caravanserai and a medieval bridge across the Akhuryan River; the river demarcates the Armenian-Turkish border.
