Ozanlar was a village in the territory of the Novo-Bayazid uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Akhta (Hrazdan) district, and present-day Kotayk province. It was located 10 km to the southwest of the village of Akhta, near the village of Alapars and on the bank of the Zangi River. 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 15 Azerbaijanis in 1831, 179 in 1873, 229 in 1886, 288 in 1897, 357 in 1908, 416 in 1914 and 455 Azerbaijanis in 1916. The Azerbaijanis were attacked, massacred or expelled by Armenian armed formations in 1918. The Armenian families removed from Türkiye were settled in the village in 1918-1919. After the establishment of Soviet power in present-day Armenia, the Azerbaijanis that survived managed to return to the village. The village was inhabited by 18 Azerbaijanis in 1922, 198 Azerbaijanis in 1939, and 111 Azerbaijanis and Armenians together in 1959. In 1960 the Azerbaijani inhabitants were deported from the village which was abolished and the historical monuments belonging to the Azerbaijanis were destroyed. At present, the territory of the village has become a cultivation field.

The toponym was coined by adding the plural forming suffix “-lar” to the word “ozan” which is used in the meaning of “ashig” in the “Book of Dede Korkut”.
