      There is a cathedral with an unusual architecture in  Aruch village located on the slope of mountain Aragats. The residence of Grigor Mamikonyan was in this place in the 7-th century. He and his wife Elena built the Aruch Cathedral and consecrated it in honor of St. Gregory the Illuminator. You can see the open sky as the dome is destroyed, and it looks like a harmonious continuation of the ancient frescos depicted on the walls. There are ruins of the chapel, basilica of Katoghike and palace near the temple where once there were halls with columns and gallery. All these objects had been built at different times. Aruch is a significant historical monument of Armenia.
