This text examines the population of Indian origin in Portugal, which comes mainly from three Indian states: Gujarat, Goa and Punjab. This population settled in Portugal in different waves, and correspondingly cultural institutions and various places of worship were built, associated with different religious traditions. This analysis relies on ethnographic reports, scientific publications, statistical data, and a mass media review. Thus, it provides historical information, demographic and socio-economic profiles, levels of integration and data on the legal framework of the Indian population living in Portugal.
