Considered by many devotees to be an extension
of the sacred Ganges River in India. This natural lake resting on
a volcanic crater is a place of worship for the Hindus in Mauritius.
Also known as the Ganga Talao, the lake becomes
alive especially during the months of February and March, when the
Hindus celebrate the Maha Shivaratree, in great pomp. The calm water
beautifully reflects the colourful temples and offerings (flowers,
bananas, incense) to the miniature representations of Shiva and
Ganesh surrounding the lake.
there is a no entrance fee. The temple is accessible and worth a visit. Please follow the religious customs.
