A COUNTRY’S majority religion is an important bit of information to know before a trip — Some places affiliate so strongly with their beliefs that it seeps into all aspects of daily life. Foreign visitors need to make sure they abide by the set of rules defined by the local religion to avoid offending the locals and/or getting into trouble with the laws.

Based on data from the Pew Research Center, Tellmaps created a map of the religious composition of countries around the world.
