Starting from the 16th century, the territory was known as Istibulagh (meaning hot fountain in Persian) under the Persian rule. On the same territory, the small village of Karavansara was founded in the 1780s during the Persian rule. However, during the days of the First Republic of Armenia in 1919, the settlement was renamed Ijevan, meaning inn or caravanserai in the Armenian language.։
