Kuwait - Places of worship

Kuwait is tolerant of many other denominations, a number of which are allowed to practice freely. Kuwait is the only country in the Gulf with strong ties to the Vatican.

Churches are located throughout the country to serve the Catholic, Protestant, Greek Orthodox, Maronite (Lebanese) and Ecumenical communities.

Other denominations, including Seventh-Day Adventist, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Marthoma, and the Indian Orthodox Syrian Church, are allowed to operate in private homes or in the facilities of recognised churches, although they are not legally recognised in Kuwait.

Religions not sanctioned in the Koran, including Hinduism and Buddhism may not build places of worship, although they are permitted to worship privately.
