The village of Lchashen, famous for its impenetrable Cyclopean fortress and royal tombs, is one of the oldest settlements in Armenia. The village used to be called Portak. The etymology of the name Portak is connected with the Armenian toponym Berdak, and most likely the village had the name Berdak, Berdats village or Berdk in the Middle Ages. It was renamed Lchashe in 1946. on April 26.

The ancient written evidences about Lchashen refer to the period of the kingdom of Van (8th century BC). The cuneiform inscription left by King Argishti I has reached us, according to which this is the land of the city of Kekhuni, which was conquered by him. Lchashen was included in the Etiun tribal confederation, one of the most powerful Ahoyans of the Kingdom of Van, and was one of the key centers on its northeastern border.
