The approximately 20,000 Indians residing in Thailand are almost equally divided between Hindus and Sikhs. The Hindu community is mostly concentrated in Bangkok, where it worships at four main Hindu temples. There are also several Brahman shrines at which Hindus and Buddhists like worship. The Hindus operate their own school where the curriculum is based on the Thai education system, though in addition to Thai it teaches Hindi, Sanskrit, and English
The Sikhs, too, are concentrated mainly in Bangkok. Divided into two sects, they worship at two different temples. Collectively, the Sikhs operate a free school for poor children, regardless of caste, creed, or religion, and through several charitable associations they support the aged and the sick.
Hindus and the Sikhs, though belonging to smaller groups, enjoy full religious rights and liberty and live with the same happiness enjoyed by the large groups in this Kingdom of tolerance and freedom, Thailand.
