Kireshli was a village in the territory of the Echmiadzin uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Abaran district, and present-day in Aragatsotn province. It was located near the Zangi River. The name of the village was noted as “Karajli” in “The Iravan Province Review Book” and marked as “Kirashlu” on the five-verst map of the Caucasus.

The village was inhabited solely by Azerbaijanis: 76 in 1831, 464 in 1873, 744 in 1886, 802 in 1897, 1,061 in 1908, 1,196 in 1914, 973 in 1916 and 207 Azerbaijanis in 1919. The Azerbaijanis were attacked, massacred or ousted from the village by Armenian armed groups in 1918. After the establishment of Soviet power in present-day Armenia, the Azerbaijanis who survived managed to return to their historical and ethnic lands. The village was inhabited solely by Azerbaijanis: 108 in 1922, 86 in 1926 and 135 in 1931. Following the decision of the Council of Ministers of the USSR on “On the resettlement of collective farmers and other Azerbaijani population from the Armenian SSR in the Kur-Araz lowland of the Azerbaijan SSR” dated 23 December 1947, the Azerbaijani inhabitants of the village were forcibly deported to Azerbaijan. Later, the village was abolished. At present, it lies in ruins.

The toponym was coined on the basis of the Turkic ethnonym “Kirajli”.
