He described the city as "one of the most beautiful and well-constructed towns in the world". Leften Stavros Stavrianos, The world to 1500: a global history, (Prentice-Hall, 1970), p.354. Outside India, the United States (Jainism in the United States), United Kingdom (Jainism in Europe), Canada (Jainism in Canada), and East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda) have large Jain communities. The first Jain temple to be built outside India was constructed and consecrated in the 1960s in Mombasa, Kenya by the local Gujarati Jain community, although Jainism in the West mostly came about after the Oswal and Jain diaspora spread to the West in the late 1970s and 1980s. Jainism is presently a strong faith in the United States, and several dozen Jain temples have been built there, primarily by the Gujarati community. American Jainism accommodates all the sects. Smaller Jain communities exist in Nepal, South Africa, Japan (Jainism in Japan), Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, Fiji, and Suriname. In Belgium (Jainism in Europe), the very successful Indian diamond community in Antwerp, almost all of whom are Jain, opened the largest Jain temple outside India in 2010, to strengthen Jain values in and across Western Europe. European and Arab presence in Mombasa dates to the Early Modern period, but European exploration (European exploration of Africa) of the interior began only in the 19th century. The British Empire established the East Africa Protectorate in 1895, from 1920 known as the Kenya Colony. The Portuguese (Portugal) were the first Europeans to explore the region of current-day Kenya, Vasco da Gama having visited Mombasa in 1498. Gama's voyage was successful in reaching India and this permitted the Portuguese to trade with the Far East directly by sea, thus challenging older trading networks of mixed land and sea routes, such as the Spice trade routes that utilized the Persian Gulf, Red Sea and caravans (camel train) to reach the eastern Mediterranean. The Republic of Venice had gained control over much of the trade routes between Europe and Asia. After traditional land routes to India had been closed by the Ottoman Turks, Portugal hoped to use the sea route pioneered by Gama to break the Venetian trading monopoly. Portuguese rule in East Africa focused mainly on a coastal strip centred in Mombasa. The Portuguese presence in East Africa officially began after 1505, when flagships under the command of Dom Francisco de Almeida (Francisco de Almeida) conquered Kilwa, an island located in what is now southern Tanzania. Robert M. Maxon and Thomas P. Ofcansky, ''Historical Dictionary of Kenya'' (2nd ed. 2000) The Portuguese (Portugal) were the first Europeans to explore the region of current-day Kenya, Vasco da Gama having visited Mombasa in 1498.
