The Indian Association of Belait (IAB) was formally registered in 1948 and the Indian Association Building was firmed and constructed around 1950. IAB is an association registered in Brunei for the Indians of Indian origin irrespective of which country they come from. The Indians came to Brunei from all walks of life. They contributed as tachers, doctors, engineers and others predominantly from construction. The place of Seria where the IAB is currently situated was a place full of swampy conditions. With the oil and gas making way for facilities development, the construction of facilities and building came to realisation. IAB was unique in the sense that from the idea to building its physical completion was carried out by Indians for the Indians. The Indians were from many part of India and also from Malaysia, Singapore, Srilanka. The building has a heritage of one of the very first permanent building to be built around that time.
The buildig became a hive for the Indians to gather and mingle to learn from each others. The men, women and childern quickly established themselves and started the various events that till this day exists. Indian communities from all parts of India will contribute their cultural heritage along with the food delcacies within the IAB. Till this day, the exchange of ideas and culture within the communities exists and will continue.
Through time immemorial, the building itself has continued to host variuos events ranging from marriage, festivals, cultural classes, language classes, musical and drama performances. It was a well-known fact that large number of Indians residing in Belait District were predominantly local Brunei ethnic Indians. Today this group of Indians have gone through cross marriages and has merged nicely with the Bruneian concept whist still maintaining the roots. This is further sustained with the ever growing form of engagenment of ethnic Indians with the expartriate Indians who are continuing to find employment in the abode of peace Brunei Darussalam.
