I attended a couple of weddings there and I also went a couple times just to view the artistry. It was nice but not very inviting for sightseers. The facilities were ok.

The statue is massive and beautiful, and the inside and surroundings of the temple is quite lovely as well. There are quite a few other nice statues in and around the temple, of course a bit smaller. A great place to visit with foreign friends to display part of the culture in Trinidad.

If you want to take a decent photo of the statue then it's probably best to go in the morning as the afternoon sun throws the face side into deep shadow.

This was an amazing place to visit, to see this 85 foot Hanuman statue was truly amazing. in all its grandeur, it was truly spectacular. The temple is adorned with beautiful statues and pictures. Intricate details adorn the ceiling and walls and serenity is felt both within and outside the temple - a great place for meditation.

A very peaceful religious enclave in central Trinidad. It is a Hindu Temple but persons of all religious persuasions visit. It is well kept and swamis are on site to assist with the ceremonial parts.
