Dashnov 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. It was located in the Cighindere region of the Vedibasar area (mahal) and to the east of the village of Boyuk Vedi.

The village was inhabited by 72 Azerbaijanis in 1931. It was integrated into the Garabaghlar district in 1937–1948. In accordance with the decision of the USSR Council of Ministers “On the resettlement of collective farmers and other Azerbaijani population from Armenian SSR to the Kur-Araz lowlands of the Azerbaijan SSR” dated 23 December 1947, the Azerbaijanis were deported to Azerbaijan. Later, some of the deportees could return to the village. Then the village was abolished. At present, it is in ruins.

The toponym was coined by combining the words “dash” meaning “a solid substance, a rock” in Azerbaijani and “nov” meaning “a semi-circle shaped metal, wooden or stone canal or waterways to carry water off”.
