Hayanist as seen from the air in the background
Hayanist (Armenian: Հայանիստ) was known as Qaraqışlaq until 1978 and Dostlugh until 1989, is a village in the Ararat Province of Armenia. The village's population is largely refugees from the population exchange with Azerbaijan in 1988-1989. It is located in Ararat valley. The distance from Yerevan is 15.4 km. Despite the favorable location of the community (proximity to Yerevan and abundance of good agricultural land), most households cannot provide for their living and heads of families often chose the labor migration as the only solution of their problems. Around 160 ha of the Community’s agricultural land are not irrigated.
