The village of Aruch is located on the southern part of Aragatz Mountain, 23km west of the centre of Ashtarak province. The village dates back to the 6th century when it was the winter camp of the royal armies. It was later made to a permanent base by Grigor Mamikonian (661-682).

The church of St Grigor in Aruch is one of the architectural marvels in Armenian art. According to the architectural evidence and found bibliographical data (Ghevond, Hovhannes Draskhanakerttsi, Stepanos Taronetsi) the church in Aruch has been built by Grigor Mamikonian in the
