The phenomenon of the diversity of the Indonesian people with the various problems that accompany it is the interesting thing behind this research. The existence of multiple religions and beliefs held by the community is one example of the many aspects of this diversity. One of the Muslim thinkers and scholars whose thoughts are pretty concerned about this issue is Azyumardi Azra. This research is library research with a qualitative biographical approach. The method used is content analysis to understand and find the substance of Azra's multicultural education thoughts in various literary sources. The study results: (1) In Azra's view, multiculturalism leads to an awareness and affirmation that all diversity and differences have the same position in the public sphere. Multiculturalism is not only limited to understanding the existence of pluralism. The core values developed in Azra's perspective are awareness of diversity (plurality), equality, humanity, justice, and democracy (democratic values); (2) Multicultural education is education for or about the diversity of society towards the formation of unity in diversity. Azra's concept of multicultural education is based on the reality of the variety of the Indonesian nation to strengthen the four pillars of nationality, namely Pancasila, the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI), the 1945 Constitution (UUD 1945), and Bhinneka Tunggal Ika.
