Bozgala was a village in the territory of the Kars uezd of the former Kars province, later in the former Amasiya (Aghbaba) district, and present-day Shirak province. It was located to the southeast of the village of Ilanli/Chaybasar and on the right bank of the Arpachay. The name of the village was marked on the five-verst map of the Caucasus.

The village was inhabited by 139 Azerbaijanis in 1908 and 159 Azerbaijanis in 1914. The village was integrated into the Provisional Government of the Southwestern Caucasus or Kars Republic founded in Kars in 1918–1919. In February 1920 the village was destroyed as a result of attacks of Armenian armed formations; a part of the inhabitants migrated to the Kars province of Türkiye, a part to the Urmiya and Salmas Counties of Iran with the assistance of the Consulate of Iran in Gumru. Following the Treaty of Kars in 1921, some of the migrated Azerbaijanis returned to the village. After the establishment of Soviet power in present-day Armenia, the village was integrated within the Aghbaba area into the Alexandropol uezd in 1921 according to the Treaty of Kars. Some of the Azerbaijanis were able to return to the village starting from 1922. The village was inhabited by 55 Azerbaijanis in 1926, 94 in 1931 and 104 Azerbaijanis in 1939. The village was abolished in 1940 and the inhabitants were moved to the village of Chaybasar. At present, the village is in ruins.

The toponym was coined by combining the word “boz” meaning “without vegetation, bare, woodless” in Azerbaijani and the word “gala”.
