East Timor Culture



Timor Leste culture is actually an amalgamation of people from different society and religion. The tourists are often amazed to see this blend of separate culture that forms a unique and unified Timor Leste culture. The origin of this Timor Leste culture is rooted in the history of the nation. Timor Leste was a colony of the Portuguese and the Dutch. Later in different times, the Australians and the Japanese also invaded in this small piece of land. All these countries had their own culture and society and though they left East Timor, the influence of this different religion left a mark on the local culture and society.

When we deal with the culture of Timor Leste, we need to consider the Timor Leste society, the social problems in Timor Leste which includes the problem of poverty in the country. The majority of population here are Roman catholics. There are also Muslims and Hindu-Buddhists here in the country. But they are almost negligible when compared to the total population. However, child education has been a major concern here for the government. The women rights are also taken care of by the government these days. Another major problem in East Timor is poverty. Government is working hard to overcome this problem. For more information on Timor Leste culture, click on the links below:
