Indian Girls In South Africa

Most Asians in South Africa are descended from indentured Indian labourers who were brought by the British from India in the 19th century, mostly to work in what is now the province of KwaZulu-Natal (KZN). The rest are descended from Indian traders who migrated to South Africa at around the same time, many from the Gujarat area. The city of Durban has the largest Asian population in sub-Saharan Africa, and the Indian independence leader Mahatma Gandhi worked as a lawyer in the city in the early 1900s. South Africa in fact has the largest population of people of Indian descent outside of India in the world, i.e. born in South Africa and not migrant, compared to the U.S. Most of them are fourth to fifth generation descent. Also, in the Natal area alone, there has been over 20 temples built over the last 140 years of indenture, as stated by the Sun Newspaper. They mainly belong to the Hindu (the largest) and Muslim religious groupings. Indian Languages such as Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and Gujarati are still retained, normally by the older generation and Generation X, creating semi speakers, as indicative of the census.

In such temples, degrees of Hinduism Vary, from Vaishnavism, inaugurated by ISKCON and The divine life society to more classical Hinduism.
