Indonesia is the most heavily populated Muslim country in the world. Roughly one in four Indonesians is Javanese, with the rest of the people in Indonesia being a mix of several other regional ethnicities.

Roughly 86 per cent of the more than 240 million people who live in Indonesia are Muslim. The country’s Christian population (Protestant and Roman Catholic) actually outnumbers the Hindu population, who comprise less than two per cent of Indonesians.

Bali represents a little Hindu outpost in this primarily Muslim country. Approximately 92 per cent of the 3.9 million people living on Bali are Hindu. The island’s culture is largely derived from Java. A very small number of people on the island maintain the original (pre-Javanese) Balinese culture and live in a few isolated villages around Bali.
