Kichik Jamishli

Kichik Jamishli is a village in the Alexandropol uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Alagoz (Aragats) district, and currently in the Aragatsotn province. It was marked on the five-verst map of the Caucasus. It is located on the banks of the Abaran River.

The village was initially inhabited by Azerbaijanis. In 1877–1878, after the Russo-Turkish war, the Yazidi Kurds removed from Türkiye were settled in the village. Following that, the Azerbaijanis gradually left the village.

The toponym was coined by combining the word “kichik” (small), which implies a distinctive feature in Azerbaijani toponymy, and the name of the Jamishli tribe of the Zulgadars.

At present, the village is called “Jamushlu”. According to the law “On the administrative-territorial division of the Republic of Armenia” dated 7 November 1995, it was integrated into the administrative territory of Aragatsotn province.
