Mollali was a village in the Novo-Bayazid uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Garanlig (Martuni) district, and currently in the Gegharkunik province. It was located 19 km to the east of the town of Martuni, bordering the villages of Alchali to the north, Gamishli to the northeast, Chamirli to the east, Godakbulag and Yukhari Zaghali to the southeast, Ashaghi Gozaldere and Gozaldere to the west and Salli of the Daralayaz area (mahal) to the south. The village was one of the settlement places of the Oghuz Turks in Goycha starting from the early 14th century and was initially named “Yekaalilar” in honour of the elderly of the tribe who built the village. Later, it was renamed “Mollali” in honour of Molla Ali Sultan, the father of Dunyamali bey, the official bey of the village. The village was noted as “Yekaalija” in “The Iravan Province Review Book” dated 1728.

 According to the census of 1873, the village was inhabited by 232 Turks and the number of inhabitants reached 278 (73 households) in 1914. The village of Mollali was destroyed as a result of the massacre committed in Goycha in 1919. After the establishment of Soviet power in Armenia, the Azerbaijanis returned to their native lands. About 50 Armenian families were settled in the village at that time. In accordance with 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 lowlands of the Azerbaijan SSR” dated 23 December 1947, 58 Azerbaijani families (315 people) were deported to Azerbaijan in 1949. The village was abolished in 1950 after the Armenian inhabitants of the village were removed to the abandoned Azerbaijani villages of the former Vedi district.
