Surp Marineh Church (Armenian: Սուրբ Մարինէ եկեղեցի) was one of eight churches existing in town of Moush (Armenian: Մուշ) before the Armenian genocide. Surp Marineh was the most notable church in whole Tarawn (Armenian: Տարոն) region of Historical Armenia, and was known as "Katoghike" (Armenian: Կաթողիկէ meaning Cathedral). Currently it is in a ruinous state and only parts of the outer walls still stand.[1][2]
