Visited this month on a Sunday. Had some difficulty finding the temple as the signage wasn't very obvious on the main road. The site itself is worth a visit but be sure to have a guide or someone who knows a bit of the history with you. There are no brochures and there is very little information on what you're... More

The Temple in the Sea at Waterloo is a perfect spot to take in the sunset. It's a quiet retreat and even the walkway to the temple makes you feel like you're in a different country. You can also catch a glimpse of the mangroves and on a clear day, see along the entire west coast. I recommend visiting the... More

Great for an calming walk, this place is so serene. First thing one would notice is the calmness around the temple and whilst walking in viewing the beautiful flowers along the way

Anytime of day is fine but evenings are especially great. The sunsets are picturesque. Water laps on the shore and it can take you away. Leaves you calm inside. It's a place of worship. You find your inner peace here.

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
