|«Kaputan» Rest Area was built in Gugark , one of the oldest settlements in Armenia.|
|It had got its name “Kaputan” from the blue colour of the eyes of Vrezh Grigoryan , who was a resident of Vanadzor.
After returning from the army Vrezh suffered from an incurable disease. To ease the pain, he often went to the area of Gugark village, had beautiful nature walks, struck summer tent and enjoyed the fresh air and the cold water of “ Razmo” source in that area, but the incurable disease cut the thread of the young man’s life in 1986.
|Vrezh’s brother Vigen Grigoryan built a rest area and called it “Kaputan” to perpetuate the memory of his brother.|
|The process of the building was held till 2004. Unfortunately, Vigen Grigoryan died all of a sudden in 2005, and the work doesn’t go anymore.|
|Near the Rest area various monuments, cross stones were built, and many necessary conditions were made for visitors to rest.|
|Not far from “Kaputan ‘rest area in the village Gugark, you can visit the church of St. Mary (built in 2015) and St. Sargis church (built in 1901).
In the area called Great Bugs, which is 5 kilometers to the north – west from the village Gugark, you can see cross stones from the 7-13th centuries.
