Ashaghi Gulubeyli

Ashaghi Gulubeyli was a village in the Echmiadzin uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Uchkilsa (Echmiadzin, Vagharshapat) district, and present-day Armavir province. It was located near the Boyuk Garasu River. The name of the village was marked on the five-verst map of the Caucasus.

The village was solely inhabited by Azerbaijanis: 298 in 1873, 421 in 1886, 501 in 1897, 718 in 1904 and 550 Azerbaijanis in 1916. The village was exposed to aggression by Armenian armed units in 1918 and the Azerbaijanis were expelled from their historical and ethnic lands. The Yezidis removed from Türkiye were settled in the village. The village was abolished in 1940.

The toponym was coined on the basis of the word “ashaghi” which expresses a distinctive feature and the personal name “Gulubey” followed by the Azerbaijani suffix “-li” and denotes “a village belonging to Gulubey”.
