Churches

As Buddhists, Thai people are tolerant of all religious beliefs and as a consequence, there are a number of functioning Christian churches in Thailand. While Portuguese missionaries in the 16th century were unsuccessful at converting the Thai population, the Thais did not restrict foreigners from practicing their own religion and as western settlers established themselves in Thailand over time, a number of beautiful churches were built by them in order to worship their god.
