Guzukend is a village in the Aghbaba area (nahiya) of the Kars uezd of the former Kars province, later in the former Amasiya (Aghbaba) district, and currently in the Shirak province. The provincial centre lies 37 km to the northwest of the town of Gumru, northwest of Lake Arpa, at a height of 2,050 m above sea level.

In the works of Armenian authors, the name is marked as “Kuzikend”, “Khozikend”, “Khozulu”. In the works of Armenian authors, the inhabitants of the village are described as the Garapapags from the Azerbaijani ethnic groups. The village was inhabited by 222 Azerbaijanis in 1886, 382 in 1897, 379 in 1908 and 455 Azerbaijanis in 1914. The village was subordinated to the Southwest Caucasian Republic founded in 1918–1919 in Kars. In February 1920 the village was attacked and destroyed by Armenian armed groups, and its inhabitants became refugees. By the Treaty of Kars in 1921, the village was integrated into Soviet Armenia within the Aghbaba area. After that, some inhabitants returned to the village. The village was inhabited by 439 Azerbaijanis in 1922, 463 in 1926, 497 in 1931, 577 in 1939, 546 in 1959, 856 in 1970, 996 in 1979 and 984 Azerbaijanis in 1987. In November–December 1988 and in January 1989 the Azerbaijanis were deported from their historical and ethnic lands by the Armenian government. At present, the village is inhabited mainly by Armenians relocated from Akhilkalak and Bogdanovka (Ninosminda) districts of Georgia.

The toponym was coined by combining the Turkic ethnonym “Guz” (a form of the Oghuz ethnonym used in Arabic), and the word “kend” used in Turkish to mean “a settlement, town”.

By the decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Armenian SSR dated 8 August 1991, it was renamed “Garnarich“. According to the law “On the administrative-territorial division of the Republic of Armenia” dated 7 November 1995, the village was integrated into the administrative territory of the Shirak province.
