Gozaldere is a village in the Alexandropol uezd of the former Iravan governorate, in the former Abaran district, and currently in the Aragatsotn province. The village was integrated into the former Alagoz (Aragats) district in 1972. The provincial centre is located 55 km to the northwest of the town of Ashtarak, nearby the Ginkhdayirman village, at a height of 2,190 m above sea level.

The village was inhabited solely by Azerbaijanis: 63 in 1831, 413 in 1873, 509 in 1886, 618 in 1897 and 413 Azerbaijanis in 1914. The Azerbaijanis, the main inhabitants of the village, were exposed to genocide by Armenian armed forces in 1918 and deported from their historical and ethnic lands, and in 1919–1920 the Armenians removed from the Turkish provinces of Mush and Bitlis, and the Iranian provinces of Khoy and Salmas were settled in the village. At present, Armenians reside in the village.
