Taoism

Spread of Daoism

Daoism (often also called Taoism), like Buddhism, is not a theistic religion, but rather a teaching. As a Chinese philosophy and worldview, Daoism is nevertheless considered a religion.

Daoism has its largest number of followers in China, where it also originated about 2,500 years ago. It further spread to the adjoining and historically China-related countries. Through emigration, Daoism also spread to other countries such as Singapore and Malaysia.
