Shotulkend 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.

The village was inhabited by 148 Azerbaijanis in 1897, 353 in 1904, 388 in 1914 and 127 Azerbaijanis in 1916. The village was abolished after the Azerbaijanis had been attacked, massacred or expelled from the village by Armenian armed units in 1918. At present, it lies in ruins.

The toponym was coined by combining the ethnonym “Shatul (Shotul)” belonging to the Turkic Takla tribe and the word “kend” meaning “a settlement, a town”.
