Galaychi was a village in the territory of the Echmiadzin uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Abaran district, and present-day Ararat province. It was located on the right tributary of the Abaran River. Another name for the village was Galacha. The village was marked as “Galacha” on the five-verst map of the Caucasus.

The Azerbaijanis were attacked, massacred or expelled from the village by Armenian armed groups in 1918. The village was abolished in the 1950s. The toponym was coined on the basis of the ethnonym “Galaychi” of the Bayandur tribe of the Oghuz.
