I love learning about other cultures, and this temple is just gorgeous. The history behind it is so fascinating, and they really take care of the architecture of this building.

Looking for the temple with the great Hanuman statue (Dattatreya Temple and Hanuman Statue) my sis and I got lost and arrived at this lovely temple. We were happy that even though it was not planned we got to see this nice mandir. Lovely garden and great sea view.

I went here because it was listed as a must-see in Trinidad. I had never been to a Hindu temple before so I had no idea of what to expect. It was nice and serene. Very few people were there when I went so I was able to see what was offered without feeling overwhelmed. It was a nice experience... More

A small attractive Hindu Temple located in the sea with a walkway to it lined with orange flags and flowers. You can see Port Of Spain and Venezuela from the walkway that circles the Temple. It is well attended by the Hindu population of the local area as the seashore is full of prayer jars and flags. I found it... More

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
