Demographics of Jambi

Ethnic Groups

Jambi’s largest ethnic group is the Malays. Except for recent divergences through colonization and other types of cultural drifting, Malays and Jambinese are generally the same people, both racially, culturally, and linguistically. However, there are some differences religiously, as Malays in Malaya tend to mostly be Hindu, while Jambi Malays tend to be split between three religions (see “Religions” section below).
