Janfada or Janfida is a village in the Echmiadzin uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Gurdugulu (Hoktemberyan) district, and currently in the Armavir province. The provincial centre lies 13 km to the south of the town of Serdarabad (Hoktemberyan, Armavir), on the left bank of the Araz River and at a height of 865 m above sea level. It was mentioned as “Janfada” in “The Iravan Province Review Book”, and as “Janfida” on the five-verst map of the Caucasus.

The 18th century source states that the village was inhabited by the Oghuz tribe “Reyhanli”. The village was populated only by Azerbaijanis: 283 in 1831, 999 in 1873, 1,165 in 1886, 1,071 in 1897, 1,172 in 1908, 1,244 in 1914, 1,384 in 1916, 1,318 in 1918 and 1,815 Azerbaijanis in 1919. In late 1919 the village was exposed to the aggression of Armenian armed units. The inhabitants of the village, the Azerbaijanis, were massacred or deported from their historical-ethnic land. The Armenians removed from the Turkish provinces of Alashkirt, Sasun, Mush, Malazgird were settled in the village. Presently, only Armenians live in the village.

According to the law “On the administrative-territorial division of the Republic of Armenia” dated 7 November 1995, it was integrated into the administrative area of the Armavir province.
