 Mon people - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Mon are primarily associated with the historical kingdoms of Dvaravati and Haripunchai; up until the 14th century, outposts of Mon culture continued to spread very far east, including modern Thai and Issan plateau cities such as Lampang and Khon Kaen.
Archaeological remains of Mon settlements have been found south of Vientiane, and may also have extended further to the north-west in the Haripunchai era.
Although the precise date cannot be fixed, it seems that the Mon have been practicing Theravada Buddhism continuously for a longer period than any other (extant) religious community on earth, as the lineage was destroyed in India, and repeatedly disrupted by invasions in Sri Lanka.
