Jainism in Australia
|Part of a series on|
The history of Jainism in Australia is relatively short when compared with the histories of Christianity on the same continent. There are four Jain centres in Australia. The Jain population in Australia is estimated to be about a few hundred.
Exodus of Asians from Uganda in 1972 due to Idi Amin's policies, forced some Jains to migrate elsewhere, like Australia.
Jain centres and/or societies have been established in Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, Canberra, Adelaide and Melbourne. Most of the centres practice Jain unity by making sure every Jain sect comes and prays together. In Sydney the centre is known as Vitraag Jain Shwetambar Sangh
