It is the place where the Indians first entered Mauritius to build the Port of Mauritius in 1735 and to work in the plantation (sugar) industry. Very informative for young kids and adults. The place is well kept.

This is where Indian indentured servants stepped off the boat to work in the local plantations. It's been made into a full-on museum of the history of labor in the islands, well curated and very informative.
