Alirzalar was a village in the territory of the Iravan uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Vedi (Ararat) district, and present-day Ararat province. Another name for the village is Zangili.

The village was inhabited by 57 Azerbaijanis in 1873, 95 in 1886, 126 in 1897, 103 in 1904, 161 in 1914 and 131 Azerbaijanis in 1916. The Azerbaijanis were forced to flee the village by Armenian armed units in spring of 1918. After the establishment of Soviet power in present-day Armenia, the Azerbaijanis who survived were able to return to the village. The village was inhabited by 33 Azerbaijanis in 1922, 47 in 1926 and 53 Azerbaijanis in 1931. By the special order of the USSR Council of Ministers, the Azerbaijanis were deported to Azerbaijan in 1948–1949 and the village was reduced to ruins. At present, it is ruined.

The toponym was coined on the basis of the multi-generational family name “Alirzalar”.
