Kohne Shahabli

Kohne Shahabli was a village in the territory of the Iravan uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Vedi (Ararat) district, and present-day Ararat province. It was located near the Chapan River and at the village of Garaghaj. The name of the village was noted in “The Iravan Province Review Book” and marked on the five-verst map of the Caucasus.

The village was inhabited by 46 Azerbaijanis in 1897. It was devastated as a result of the massacre committed by Armenian armed units in 1905–1906.

The toponym was coined by combining the distinctive word “kohna” and the Oghuz ethnonym “Shahabli”.
