Jump to navigation Jump to search

Apart from India, where the vast majority (966 million) [1]of the world's 1.03 billion [2] Hindu population lives, Hindu Temples are found across the world, on every continent. In the Indian Subcontinent, thousands of modern and historic temples are spread across Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Outside the region, the oldest temples can be found in Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia where ancient seafaring empires like the Chola Empire and Vijayanagara Empire spread their dominions.

In the early modern period, Mauritius, Fiji, Singapore and Suriname, have seen many temples being built, as theIndian Diaspora settled across these areas over the past 250-300 years.

Over the past 70 years, immigration to western nations have led to the construction of temples for the Hindu communities in these countries.
