Sinig 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 12 km to the northeast of Amasiya and to the left from the Moghuz River.

The village was solely inhabited by Azerbaijanis: 130 in 1886, 118 in 1897, 164 in 1908 and 241 Azerbaijanis in 1914. The village was devastated as a result of attacks of Armenian armed formations in February 1920 and the inhabitants were displaced. The village was integrated within the Aghbaba area into Soviet Armenia according to the Treaty of Kars in 1921. After that, the inhabitants of the village migrated to Türkiye and it was inhabited by Armenians in 1922. The village was abolished in early 1940. At present, it lies in ruins.

The toponym was coined on the basis of the word “shinikh” meaning “a village, a settlement”.
