Jujevan is a village in the Borchali uezd of the former Tiflis governorate, later in the former Barana (Noyemberyan) district, and currently in the Tavush province. The provincial centre lies 42 km to the northwest of the town of the  Karvansara (Ijevan), and at a height of 1,100 m above sea level. Armenian authors indicate in their works that the village was founded in 1873 which is not true. That is, there are historical monuments (the Turkic tombs, the fortress walls) dating back to the 12th-13th centuries in the village.

The toponym was coined by combining the word “juje” reflecting the name of the people founded in association with the name of Juji, Tengiz Khan’s eldest son and the word “van” (ban) formed on the basis of the word “ebani” (ubani) denoting “a country”, “a place” in the Urartian language expresses the meaning “the country, the dwelling place of the Juji tribe”.

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 Tavush province.
