We had a family wedding in this location. The architecture of this temple is magnificent, and you will not see this anywhere else in Trinidad and Tobago. Many people come to see the very tall Hanuman murti which is spectacular, but for me the intricate design of the temple structure is breathtaking, and makes you appreciate the culture. Its perfect...

My first visit to this temple was when I attended a Hindu wedding and the place is just absolutely gorgeous. A nice place to spend time with family just strolling around the immaculate grounds, very clean and quiet. The moldings are so intricate and the designs on the walls, ceilings and flooring are amazing. Lots of picturesque buildings and statues... More

My visit to the Dattatreya Temple and Hanuman Statue was made very soon after the opening ceremony and blessing of the temple and statue. It was with great amazement and pride in which I left the venue. Upon entering the compound one can feel the calm and immediate peace that settles on the individual. I myself am not a Hindu... More

You should take a trip here, beutiful details. Very colorful. When we was there they work with the church, so there was very little people. But a walk outside to see all the details is worth the trip.

The Temple and associated structures are not hard to find and are certainly worth a visit when in Trinidad. There is a pervasive calm to the area and the intricate working on the several structures are quire fascinating. This is a working holy place and is no "tour" guide or information available on site and visitors are asked to maintain... More

This was the second time we visited the site which is one of the more famous religious sites in Trinidad - the 85-foot-high Hanuman murthi. Now in Trinidad, you would assume that if there is a sign off the highway at the Carlsen Field flyover, you would expect that there would be tons of signage directing you over to the... More

The temple is large and beautiful and well kept. The colossal statue of Lord Hanuman is unexpected as you're driving along and beckons you to stop and visit. There's a little gift/souvenir shop on the premises. Check hours. Remove your shoes before entering the temple.
