What a surprise

A very interesting place and has quite a story behind it as well. Love the fact you can walk around yourself. Love the little temple at the end of the walk. A beautiful place and very peaceful.

Amazing structure with amazing views. This temple has a unique history for Indians and for Trinidad. The location is very unique for a temple and the views out to sea are very unique. The temple itself has been very well kept inside, but the outside is very exposed to the outside elements so it's not possible to keep it looking... More

I visited here a lot when I was a child and I have seen the many stages of development. I can appreciate where it was and where it is presently. I would highly recommend a visit for locals as we try to "know our country" and for visitors to experience the wealth of diversity our shores are blessed with!

A short causeway has been built out from shore with the temple at the end. It is pretty, but not especially worth the effort of getting there.

Loved this place. So peaceful and calm with the waves lapping around. Lovely easy walk to get to it. Unfortunately temple was not open during our visit but we still took a walk around. A serene environment There were a lot of idol artifacts in the sea near the entrance which didn't look at all good.

I visited here some time in September of this year with my family. The temple it self was clean the tour guide was very knowledgeable but the sea have a very creepy look and feel to it. It felt like death or bad karma

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
