“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Visited for a short while a couple of days ago. Very serene, from the front surroundings to the walk to the temple and around it. There is alot of sitting areas to just sit and relax. A must see for both local and tourists.

“Very Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Set way out on a spit of land, a beautiful temple. Take easily removable shoes if you want to go inside the temple (visitors of all denominations can go inside, but check for specific times). Peaceful lovely place and worth the drive.

“Interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

This was not one of the top things to see in Trinidad. It was merely interesting, in my opinion. Went there basically to kill some time.

“Good karma at the Temple”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Yesterday we walked out to the temple in the sea in Waterloo. One the shore there were two blazing funeral pyres burning amid hundreds of attendees. Inside the temple, a guru gave our college group a very hypnotic talk about Hinduism, its philosophies, deities and reincarnation. All about helping others, and sending ripples of good karma throughout the universe. Interestingly, most of the students had never really heard this firsthand, and in such a simple, sensible way.

On the walk back, we passed one of the mourners, whose car was stuck in muddy grass on the sloping shoulder. A bunch of the boys and I pushed him out and we was on his way. Good karma for us.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

Nothing much to see unless you are a practicing Hindu. If you go on your own there is no one there to give the relevance and spiritual history of the attraction.
