Lori Fortress (Armenian: Լոռի բերդ) is an 11th-century Armenian fortress located near the Lori Berd village in Lori Province, Armenia. The fortress was built by David Anhoghin[1] to become the capital of Kingdom of Tashir-Dzoraget in 1065.

The Lori Fortress was the site where the Georgian king Giorgi III of Georgia trapped and besieged his rebellious nephew, Demna of Georgia in 1177.[2]

The fortress was captured by the Mongol commander Chagatai the Elder in 1239.[3]
