Migration historyedit

A Tamil community has been around since the 1860s Most of the Indians arrived in the last century, notably from Tamil Nadu Tamil Nadu is an ancient country, a lot of Tamil people came during the Chola period Some others came from Punjab, Rajasthan and some from Gujarat Buddhism and Hinduism originally arrived in Thailand from India and spread over the years

The historical number of the Indian population in Thailand can be seen in British consular statistics; however, these figures often lumped Indians together with Sinhalese and Malays According to 1912 statistics, there were 30 Indians registered in the Chiengmai Chiang Mai consular district, 41 Indians and Malays in the Puket Phuket consular district, 40 Indians and Malays in the Senggora Songkhla consular district, and 423 Indians, Sinhalese, and Malays in the Bangkok consular district These figures were also believed to be a gross undercount of the true population; for example, the Bangkok consular district had registered only 517 British subjects, but other estimates claimed the number was 20 times higher2
