Take a trip to Waterloo and you would be surprised at the architecture of this place of worship. The serenity in the Gulf of Paria. It is worth it.

Quarter of a mile off the west coast of Trinidad there stands an extraordinary monument to the human spirit: a magnificent Hindu temple, completed and consecrated at the end of 1995, standing in the sea. It bears the name Sewdass Sadhu Shiv Mandir

I loved visiting here.....it's tranquil and you can be at peace with your thoughts. There are benches alone the Temple when one can sit and enjoy the evening sunset.....it's a sight to behold. The Temple itself is usually locked to protect against any vandalism.....but, if you contact them(caretaker) in advance to set up an appointment for viewing they are only... More

We happened to arrive just as a funeral was ending so parking was tight but the funeral fire was still blazing away. The small temple was wonderful. Tried to get some east indian street food nut they were all sold out.

Read about the history before you go. You will appreciate the resilience and determination that went into building it. Quite an inspiration for any religion or person.

This is a small pleasant little temple unusually built on a spit out into the sea, apparently because they were prohibited from building it on land. It's nice enough but nothing special/

It's a small temple with a lovely view, especially if you can catch it at sunset. The waters are calm and it seems to be a good place for a bit of meditation. Be sure to check out the Dattatreya Temple on the way to this one!

Being a temple, this place has a specific appeal - however do read the history - it becomes an inspiring story. It's small, not as 'ornate' as other temples around the world, but well worth a visit.

I am not the best person to review the Temple by the Sea. It is a lovely little temple with puga flags flying, and Plaster of Paris Monkey Kings on each side of the entrance. But having traveled a great deal in Asia, I have visited many such temples. Particularly in Bali where these charming little places are found around... More
