Mumukhan was a village in the territory of the Aghbaba area (nahiya) of the Kars uezd of the former Kars province, later in the former Amasiya (Aghbaba) district, and present-day Shirak province. It was located 10 km to the northwest of the settlement of Amasiya. The village was marked on the five-verst map of the Caucasus. Armenian sources state that the Garapapags were the inhabitants of the village.

The village was inhabited by 127 Azerbaijanis in 1886, 156 in 1897, 153 in 1908 and 229 Azerbaijanis in 1914. The village was within the Provisional National Government of the Southwestern Caucasus founded in Kars in 1918–1919. The village was destroyed as a result of the attacks of Armenian armed formations in February 1920 and the inhabitants migrated to the Kars province of Türkiye. After the Treaty of Kars in 1921, a part of the inhabitants returned to the village. After the establishment of Soviet power in present-day Armenia in 1921, the village was integrated into the Alexandropol uezd within the Aghbaba area according to the Treaty of Kars. The Armenians from Türkiye were settled in the village. According to the 1931 census, the village was inhabited by 173 Armenians and two Azerbaijanis in the village.

The toponym was coined on the basis of the Turkic personal name “Mamak-Mamgun”. The name “Mamak” was mentioned as “Iron dressed Mumag” in the epos “The Book of Dede Korkut”. The village was abolished in the 1930s. At present, it lies in ruins.
