Sarikhanli 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 14-16 km to the southwest of the settlement of Boyuk Vedi, on the bank of the Araz River, on the affluent of the Vedi River and near the village of Khalisa. The name of the village was noted in “The Iravan Province Comprehensive Data Book”.

The village was inhabited by 288 Azerbaijanis in 1873, 338 in 1886, 358 in 1897, 160 in 1904, 176 in 1914 and 204 Azerbaijanis in 1916. The Azerbaijanis were attacked, massacred or expelled from the village by Armenian armed units in 1919. After that, the village was abolished. At present, it lies in ruins.

The toponym was coined on the basis of the ethnonym “Sarikhanli” which was a branch of the Turkic Takla tribe.
