Armenia was the first place in the world to adopt Christianity as its official religion in 301 AD. King Tiridates III did this even before Emperor Constantine the Great of the Roman Empire, or any other nation for that matter. Armenia also has the first Church ever built, the Holy Etchmiadzin. It was built over 1700 years ago and still stands today.
