Sonasar village has a historical past. It is located on the right bank of the river Hochants on about 1,350 meters high above sea level. In the Middle Ages, it was part of the region Aghahech and later Kashatagh of the Syunik province of Mets Hayk. According to Stepanos Orbbelyan’s memoir, Sonasar-Dzunasar has given six portions of taxes to Tatev Monastery. Armenians were expelled from the village in the 18th century similar to the rest of the Armenian settlements in the area. The village had a church with columns, which according to witnesses, was demolished in the 1930s. The village was liberated in the spring of 1993, and repopulated two years later. The main occupation of the population is cattle breeding, beekeeping, and farming. The village school is named after Samson Kyureghyan, a deceased freedom fighter. The school has seventeen students and eight teachers. In the new school year, two students will be admitted to the first grade. There is a need for a physics and foreign language teacher.
