Garabulag is a village in the Echmiadzin uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Abaran district, and currently in the Aragatsotn province. The provincial centre lies 21 km to the northeast of the town of Ashtarak, on the left bank of the Abaran River, at a height of 1,850 m above sea level. It was marked in “The Iravan Province Review Book” and on the five-verst map of the Caucasus. Another name for the village was “Yukhari Gapili”.

According to the Treaties of Turkmenchay (1828) and Adrianople (1829), following the settlement of Armenians in the village, the Azerbaijanis living there moved to Türkiye.

The toponym was coined by combining the words “bulag” (a spring) and “gara” (black) meaning “less suitable for drinking or use”, “heavy, low-quality water”, “dirty, muddled water” in the Azerbaijani language, and means “a village near Garabulag”.

By the decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Armenian SSR dated 15 July 1946, the village was renamed “Yerinjatap”. According to the law “On the administrative-territorial division of the Republic of Armenia” dated 7 November 1995, it was integrated into the administrative territory of Aragatsotn province.
