St. Hovhannes Church Arinj

The St. Hovhannes Church sits at the center of the old part of the village or Arinj.
Apparently on this spot there used to be another church named St. Astvatsatsin but it was in such bad condition that the village decided to build a new one instead of renovating the old. So, in 1880 St. Hovhannes church was built. During the soviet era the church was used as a warehouse.
