Garajalar 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 to the south of Alagoz Mountain. The village was noted as “Galachilar” in Armenian sources. The village was marked on the five-verst map of the Caucasus.

The village was solely inhabited by Azerbaijanis: 104 in 1831, 272 in 1873, 279 in 1886, 381 in 1897, 360 in 1908, 381 in 1914 and 526 Azerbaijanis in 1916. The Azerbaijanis were attacked, massacred or ousted from the village by Armenian armed formations in 1918. Armenians were removed from Türkiye and settled in the village in 1918–1920. The village was abolished in the 1940s.

The toponym was coined on the basis of the name of the Turkic Garajalar tribe.
