One of the distinguishing features of Myanmar is its remarkable diversity. It is a country with more than a hundred ethnic groups associated with myriad of languages and cultural traditions. Buddhism and Hinduism are the oldest religions in the country, having arrived from Indian in the first millennium. However, both Islam and Christianity established enclaves and attracted considerable followings long before Myanmar’s birth as an independent country. Located in the heart of Southeast Asia, the territory of Myanmar has been a meeting point for various people inhabiting the larger region, and it is likely to continue serving as a cultural crossroads for centuries to come.
