Guzajik was a village in the territory of the Iravan uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Ellar (Kotayk, Abovyan) district, and present-day Kotayk province, and located 11 km to the east of Iravan. The village was marked on the five-verst map of the Caucasus.

The village was inhabited by 100 Azerbaijanis in 1873, 109 in 1886, 127 in 1897, 119 in 1904, 138 in 1914 and 165 Azerbaijanis in 1916. Armenians committed bloodshed in the village in 1905–1906. The village was inhabited by 119 Azerbaijanis in February 1918. The Azerbaijanis were attacked, massacred or ousted from the village by Armenian armed units in 1918. Only after the establishment of Soviet power in present-day Armenia, the Azerbaijanis who survived managed to return to the village. The village was inhabited by 53 Azerbaijanis in 1922. They were completely expelled from their historical and ethnic lands and the village was reduced to ruins.

The toponym was coined on the basis of the ethnonym “Guzujakli” of the Turkic Bayat tribe.
