Kheyirbeyli 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 is located 43 km to the southwest of the Serdarabad (Hoktemberyan, Armavir) town, on the left bank of the Araz River, at a height of 975 m above sea level. It was marked on the five-verst map of the Caucasus.

The village was solely inhabited by Azerbaijanis: 301 in 1831, 342 in 1873, 379 in 1886, 466 in 1897, 414 in 1908, 438 in 1914 and 416 Azerbaijanis in 1916. In 1918 the village was invaded by Armenian armed forces, its residents were deported and Armenians were settled to the village. The surviving villagers managed to return to their historical and ethnic lands following the establishment of Soviet power in present-day Armenia. The village was inhabited by 334 Azerbaijanis and 11 Armenians in 1922, 266 Azerbaijanis and 116 Armenians in 1926, 327 Azerbaijanis and 119 Armenians in 1931. According to the decision of the USSR Council of Ministers “On the resettlement of collective farmers and other Azerbaijani population from the Armenian SSR to the Kur-Araz lowland of the Azerbaijan SSR” dated 23 December 1947, the population of the village was forcibly deported to Azerbaijan. At present, the village is inhabited by Armenians.

The toponym was formed on the basis of the name of the multi-generational family “Kheyirbeyli” and means “the village where the Kheyirbeyli multi-generational family lives”.

By the decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Armenian SSR dated 25 May 1967, the village was renamed “Yervandashat”. 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.
