Ushi (Armenian: Ուշի) is a village in the Aragatsotn Province of Armenia. The town contains a 10th-century chapel, and approximately 1 km outside of the village are the ruins of Saint Sargis Monastery of the 7th to 13th centuries. Under the Chapel of Saint Sargis (the only structure still standing), is the grave and re-interred remains of the aforementioned saint. On top of the hill adjacent to the monastery complex are the collapsed remains of an Iron Age Fortress.
