Garghavang is a village in the Echmiadzin uezd of the Iravan  governorate, later in the former Ashtarak district, and currently in the Kotayk province, at a height of 1,583 m above sea level. It was marked on the five-verst map of the Caucasus.

 In 1897 the village was inhabited only by 182 Azerbaijanis. In 1905–1906 the Armenian armed groups committed massacres in the village. Later, the Armenians removed from Iran and Türkiye were settled in the village.

The toponym was coined by combining the Turkic ethnonym “Gargha” and the word “vang” used to mean “a temple”.

The name of the village was later changed to “Zoravan”. According to the law “On the administrative-territorial division of the Republic of Armenia” dated 7 November 1995, it was integrated into the administrative area of the Kotayk province.
