A Indian temple to visit and feel a bit of peace. You have many idols and it is your faith and belief that makes your visit worth it or not! For me it was good to see and visit something having seen in India.

Finding a Hindu Temple in the narrow streets of Stone Town is no easy feat. However. the Shakti Temple is worth a visit as there are so few of them in Zanzibar and this one is quite a well run peaceful place. Recommended!
