Introduction / History
The South Asians (Indians) in Spain are one of the smaller Indian peoples. Most Indians came to Spain from Africa while some migrated from India, Japan and South East Asia. They speak Hindi, Sindhi, Punjabi, Spanish and English. Some are Hindus and some are Sikhs.

After World War Two, Sindhi traders and shop owners did well in Las Palmas, the Canary Islands and Tenerife because of restrictions on Spain. They traded with North Africa from Las Palmas.

The next movement of Indians going to Spain was from Equatorial Guinea which was a Spanish colony in Africa. When importing became freer in the 1980s, business activity moved to Madrid, Barcelona and Malaga.

The Indians in Spain are hardworking, peaceful and do not get involved in politics. They have mixed well with others in Spain. There are a lot of Indian restaurants in Majorca. Many Indians living in Majorca own businesses.

Most of the Indians are Sindhis and Sikhs. They celebrate several Indian festivals. They have temples in the Canary Islands, Ceuta and Valencia.

There are many Hindu and Indian organizations in Spain. Some Spaniards have converted to Hinduism. There is a Hindu temple in Valencia and Krishna temples in Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga and Tenerife and also in Barcelona there is a Krishna restaurant.

There is an increase in South Asian migrants to Spain like in other European countries but is low in comparison to other countries of the Mediterranean.
