Dighir was a village in the territory of the Echmiadzin uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Ashtarak district, and present-day Aragatsotn province. It was located at the foot of Alagoz Mountain. The name of the village was noted in “The Iravan Province Comprehensive Data Book” compiled in 1590 and marked as “Digir” and “Dgir” on the five-verst map of the Caucasus.

The village was inhabited only by 35 Azerbaijanis in 1831. The Azerbaijanis were expelled from the village between the 1840s and 1850s and the Armenians removed from Türkiye were settled there. The village was abolished in 1950. At present, it is in ruins.

The toponym was coined from the word “takir” meaning in Turkic “a wide, spacious, flat, clayed area”, “an area without vegetation”, “bald”.
