Buddhism in Sweden

The Thai pavilion in Jämtland

Buddhism is a relatively small religion in Sweden. Most of the practicing Buddhists have various Asian (mostly Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese) heritage.

A Buddhist Temple was planned for Fredrika, a small town in the north part of Sweden. This Thai-style temple would be the biggest Buddhist temple in Europe when finished.

There is a Thai pavilion in Jämtland, a region in central Sweden.
