Molla Ahmad

Molla Ahmad was a village in the territory of the Iravan uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Gamarli (Artashat) district, and present-day Ararat province. It was located 30 km to the northeast of the settlement of Gamarli (Artashat), at the lower part of the Molla Ahmad spring and near the village of Boyuk Gilanlar. It was within the former Vedi (Ararat) district in the 1930s. The village was marked on the five-verst map of the Caucasus.

The village was inhabited by 28 Azerbaijanis in 1873, 34 in 1886, 65 in 1897, 51 in 1904, 88 in 1914 and 71 Azerbaijanis in 1916. The Azerbaijanis were attacked, massacred or ousted from the village by Armenian armed units in 1918. After the establishment of Soviet power in present-day Armenia, the surviving Azerbaijanis managed to return to their village. The village was inhabited by 25 Azerbaijanis in 1922, 37 in 1926 and 10 in 1931. The village was abolished in late 1930s. At present, the village is in ruins.

The toponym was coined on the basis of a personal name.
