Ajapnyak (Armenian: Աջափնյակ), is one of the 12 districts of Yerevan, the capital of Armenia. It is located to the northwest of the city centre. As of the 2011 estimate, the district has a population of 108,300.

Its name, literally "right bank", refers to its location on the right bank of Hrazdan River. The administrative district of Ajapnyak has common borders with the districts of Arabkir, Davtashen, Kentron, and Malatia-Sebastia. On the outer border it is adjacent to Armavir, Aragatsotn and Kotayk provinces.[2]

The district lies on the right bank of Hrazdan River, thus securing its connection with the rest of Yerevan through the Great Bridge of Hrazdan. It is unofficially divided into smaller neighborhoods such as: Ajapnyak block, Norashen, Nazarbekyan, Silikyan, Lukashin, Vahagni, Anastasavan and Cheryomushki.

The district is home to the Armenia Republican Medical Centre, the largest hospital in Yerevan. The "Shant" ice cream factory is located in Ajapnyak as well.
