Introduction / History

The Hindu Tamils in Sri Lanka originally come from India. They live mostly in the Hill Country which is the Central Highlands. Others live in the main cities in the Northern Province.

The Indian Hindu Tamils in Sri Lanka work on plantations. This plantation work is very important to the Sri Lankan economy. The Hindu Tamils originating from India are less well off than others in this country. By the 1990's, most Indian Tamils had obtained Sri Lankan nationality.

Many Hindu temples are in Sri Lanka. Mariamman is the favorite deity of the Indian Hindu Tamils. They worship other deities too. They follow the customs of their South Indian ancestors.


Prayer Points

* Pray that God will give the Hindu Tamils of Sri Lanka dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that Gospel materials will lead them to salvation.
