Tamil Surya Oudaya Sangam Temple, Grand Baie

3.8
Richly decorated with many colorful representations of Hindu deities, Tamil Surya Oudaya Sangam Temple sits along a coastal road. Most of the statues and carvings depict the principal Hindu gods Shiva, Durga, and Ganesh in puzzling poses. Extremely ornate from the outside, the temple is less impressive from the inside. Occasionally, you can see the priests chanting and bestowing blessings on the visitors. Feed the monkeys that gather around the temple.

  • Nice colors, nice place
  • This Hindu temple. There the deity Ganesh, Shiva, Kali Lingam and others. On some sites write that this Buddhist temple-it is an error. Also write that this exceptionally beautiful temple, it is also not true, such temples in Mauritius a lot, almost every village. Here already faded colors and external general view some tacky, bright colors inside the temple. Many figurines depicting the various Hindu deities adorn the roof and wall of a temple it is unusual and interesting stand and consider. When we came to the temple, a temple attendant showed us the deity, sums up to everyone and said the name, although each deity names are written. And asked donejshen 100 rupees. I wanted to quickly escape from him. We wanted to get away and didn't give money, but he then insistently reminded us. It was unpleasant. We went to this temple waiting to see something interesting here. But expectations have not been fulfilled. I do not recommend this place. You can safely enter any similar shrine in Mauritius in less tourist town and spend more time contemplating the beauty of gods and brightness of paints.
