Hinduism 01

Hinduism involves the belief in many gods and goddesses. The religion began in India and is still the religion of the majority of Indians and the people of Nepal today. Did you know that there is no commonly agreed set of teachings for Hinduism?

Hinduism is the third largest religion in the world and Hindus are spread across the globe. You may have heard of yoga and mantras, but what about Bhakti, mandirs and Vishnu? There is much to learn about Hinduism and if you want to delve deeper, we have a series of quizzes in our Specialist section on the subject.

See how much you know about the Hindu faith by trying this KS2 RE quiz.
