Ανδρολύκου is a Turkish Cypriot village in the Paphos District of Cyprus. It is currently mostly empty, but before the invasion, it had a population of 498. In October 1974 most men of fighting age were arrested and sent to the Geroskipou POW camp, while other villagers left secretly to the Turkish-controlled area. 248 people remaining in the village were escorted by UNFICYP in August 1975 to the Turkish sector, they were mainly resettled in Myrtou.  Apart from one Turkish Cypriot married to a Greek Cypriot woman, the whole village was evacuated.  Some also were resettled in Lapithos and Morphou municipalities.  
The number of Androlikou/Gündoğdu Turkish Cypriots (excluding Fasli villagers) who were displaced after 1974 was around 400-450 (385 in 1960 census). Currently the village is empty and in ruins. The 2001 census recorded only 2 people living there. One of the two was presumably the Turkish Cypriot shepherd who stayed behind, and the other was his Greek Cypriot wife.
