The Dattareya Yoga Centre and Temple is an amalgamation of many wonderful works or architecture, including the temple itself and a giant Hanuman statue that stands by it, perched upon a small shrine. The temple is dedicated to the Hindu trinity Dattareya and is a source of joy and reverence for the large Hindu Indo-Trinidadian population on the island.
