Gotur was a village in the territory of the Echmiadzin uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Abaran district, and present-day Aragatsotn province. It was located 42 km to the northwest of the provincial centre, on the left tributary of the Abaran River and at a height of 1,720 m above sea level.

The village was marked on the five-verst map of the Caucasus. Another name for the village was Goytur. The village was initially inhabited by Azerbaijanis. After Armenians had been removed and settled in the territory of the Iravan khanate by the Treaty of Adrianople (1829), the original inhabitants of the village migrated to Türkiye. The Armenians removed from Türkiye and Iran were settled in the village in 1829–1840. Along with the Armenians, the village was inhabited by 72 Azerbaijanis in 1873, 80 in 1886 and 100 Azerbaijanis in 1897. The Azerbaijanis were exposed to the attacks of Armenian armed groups and expelled from the village in 1918. The name of the village was not mentioned in any source after 1931. At present, it lies in ruins. The toponym was coined on the basis of the word “gotur” meaning “a wasteland, a place without any vegetation” in Azerbaijani.
