Yezidi settlements in Armenia appeared in the early XIX century, the process of resettlement began after the capture of the Erivan Khanate by the Russians. For the first time, Yezidi settlers settle at the foot of Mount Alagyaz in Aparan. Before them, Muslim Kurds and Azerbaijanis lived in these parts, who later left these places and some of them moved to Azerbaijan, and some moved to Turkey.
It is known that the Balan tribe from among the Yezidi people was one of the first settlers in Aparan. The Mahmud Yezidis moved here after them, under the leadership of the ancient house of Choban-aga. Gradually, the number of Yezidis in Armenia began to multiply, and this continued until 1918. The Yezidis were mainly engaged in cattle herding and lived in peace with neighboring nationalities.
Yazidis often came to Tiflis to work and then returned home, for which they had to travel a long way.
