Pyunik (Armenian: Փյունիկ; Azerbaijani: Dədəqışlaq, anglicized: Dadagyshlag) is a town in the Kotayk Province of Armenia. It is part of the community of Artavaz village. The town was populated by Azerbaijanis before the exodus of Azerbaijanis from Armenia after the outbreak of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. In 1988-1989 Armenian refugees from Azerbaijan settled in the village.[2]

Pyunik is a popular summer resort with several hotels and sports facilities.

Etymology[edit]

The town was formerly known as Dadagyshlag and later, Akhundov in honour of Azerbaijani author Mirza Fatali Akhundov.
