Girghili was a village in the Zangezur uyzed of the former Yelizavetpol (Ganja) governorate, later in the former Gafan district, and currently in the Syunik province. After the establishment of the Zangezur uezd in Soviet Armenia on 31 August 1921, the village was integrated into the administrative area of Armenia.

The village was historically inhabited by Azerbaijanis. According to sources, the village was inhabited by 191 Azerbaijanis in the village in 1914. The Azerbaijanis were attacked, massacred or expelled from the village by Armenian armed units in 1918. Later, Armenians were settled in the village.

The toponym was coined on the basis of the Turkic ethnonym “Girghili”. Later, the village was abolished. At present, it lies in ruins.
