Religions in Wuhan

The number of religious worshippers in China is estimated at well over 100 million, most of who follow Buddhism. Historically in China, three main schools of thought were of significant influence: Taoism, Confucianism, and Buddhism, the latter originally came from India in the 1st century A.D.

Other major religions are Christianity, Islam, Lamaism (Tibetan). Christianity is in both its Catholic and Protestant forms.

Religious beliefs were suppressed during the Chinese Cultural Revolution. Monasteries were broken up, temples destroyed and monks were eliminated or sent to labor camps and forced to convert. Today, numerous places for worship have been abandoned or used for other purposes; however, some have been refurbished.

Since 1976, all religious activities are allowed but are closely monitored by the State.
