South Asian Student Association

It's important to understand what makes up South Asian culture in order to comprehend it. The countries of India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, and Sri Lanka make up the South Asian subcontinent. There is a staggering degree of difference among these nations regarding cultural customs. However, there are some similarities. Hinduism, Islam, and Sikhism are the three main faiths practiced in South Asia. These religions manifest in similar religious traditions across the region. Regardless of religion, each South Asian region has distinct characteristics. In essence, there are both significant cultural distinctions and similarities among the people of South Asia.
