Aruch (Armenian: Արուճ; until 1970, Talish) is a town in the Aragatsotn Province of Armenia. It is located on the southern part of Mount Aragats. The town 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 village is the location of the 7th century Armenian monastic complex Aruchavank. There are also remains of the Mamikonians' palace.
