Chirakhli was a village in the Sharur-Daralayaz uezd of the Iravan government, later in the former Pashali (Azizbeyov, Vayk) district, and currently in the Vayots Dzor province. It was located near the gorge of Chirakhli and next to the village of Terp. The name of the village was marked as “Chirakhlu” on the five-verst map of the Caucasus.

The village was solely inhabited by Azerbaijanis: 21 in 1873, 20 in 1886, 31 in 1897, 41 in 1904, 45 in 1914 and 97 Azerbaijanis in 1916 . The Azerbaijanis were attacked, massacred or expelled from the village by Armenian armed units in 1918. After the establishment of Soviet power in present-day Armenia, the displaced inhabitants of the village could return to their native lands. The village was inhabited only by 40 Azerbaijanis in 1922 and 15 Azerbaijanis in 1926. They were forced out from the village in 1920–1930. The village was abolished in 1930. At present, it is in ruins.

The toponym was coined by adding the identifying suffix “-li” to a variant of the Old Syriac Turkic ethnonym “Chirak” (Chirakh).
