The village is located on the right bank of Getik river. Most of the residents are Armenian refugees from Azerbaijan. The name of the community is derived from the cross stones preserved here. Historical monuments of the village include the chapel of Khachi Tap as well as a tomb field from 2nd -1st millennium B.C..

In 2013, within Hayastan All Armenian Fund rural development initiative, a new facility was constructed in Khachardzan village to tackle the issue of the health care point. The facility also included an events hall. The second project in the village saw the full reconstruction of the village school.

Currently, Hayastan All Armenian Fund has launched the full reconstruction of the village water network. The project will include the construction of captations, the rehabilitation of the water main, the construction of a reservoir as well as a comprehensive internal distribution network. After the completion of the project, the village residents will have a round the clock access to potable water.
