Askipara is a village in the Borchali uezd of the former Tiflis governorate, later in the former Barana (Noyemberyan) district, and currently in the Tavush province. The provincial centre lies 31 km to the northwest of the town of  Karvansara (Ijevan) and at a height of 850 m above sea level.

The village was initially inhabited by Azerbaijanis who gradually left there after Armenians had been settled in the region.

The toponym was coined by combining the word “aski” used in Turkish in the sense of “ancient, old” and the word “para” used to mean “an area of land”, “half part”. The village was renamed “Voskepar”. According to the law “On the administrative-territorial division of the Republic of Armenia” dated 7 November 1995, it was integrated into the administrative area of the Tavush province.
