I think greater than this place and what it stands for is the story behind it. A man who had such a love for his devotional practice and through determination and faith he established such a beautiful shrine. A sign of true love for the divine.

This stunning temple captures the fascinating history of Indians in Trinidad. Beautiful views of the bay, quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Tourists come here to explore, but locals come here to worship as well, so it is important to be respectful of the Hindu culture and religion while visiting this site. Absolutely beautiful, wouldn't miss it.

This venue at sunset is very beautiful The tale of an old devotee with a dream to fulfill his promise to God is a wonderful story of diligence ,struggle , faith and hope in himself and his beliefs. The actual temple is not very large but it is clean and well kept. Visitors are asked to respect this as a... More

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.

We had no idea what to expect as we drew up, but it was a lovely surprise, very calming atmosphere. We couldn't go into the Temple itself as a Marriage Ceremony was in progress. Definitely worth a visit and it has a great view of Venezuela on a clear day!

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.
