Shorjha (Arm: Շորժա), Gegharkunik Marz

Just beyond this turnoff is the small village of Shorzha (551 p), with a 17th c. chapel/cemetery on the S edge of town, a ruined chapel on the hill above, and an Iron Age fort somewhere in the vicinity. South of the village, a paved road angles SW onto the Artanish peninsula. There is a substantial vacation compound, including gravel beach, now belonging to the Union of Artists.

Taking the left fork at the villiage store of Ayrk, one comes to the essentially abandoned hamlets of Nerkin Shorzha (69 p), and Verin Shorzha (46 p).
