Landmark
Founded in 1888, Maheswarnath Temple remains one of the oldest and largest Hindu shrines in Mauritius. According to local legend, a pot of gold and silver belonging to Indian pirates was buried on this site, providing the means for building the sacred structure. Painted white, the shrine features sculptures and floral designs made to provide a striking contrast to the white background. Walk inside the main temple to see representations of the presiding deity Lord Shiva, his wife, and sons.

  • We visited this temple as part of our tour planned on one of the days and all of us enjoyed the peaceful place.  more »
  • Triolet, the temple complex is located at the end of the village. The admission is free. A main building and many outbuildings are located on the system. A convenient place to get to know the culture. You can enter any building if it takes off the shoes.

  • The temple is beautiful but in poor condition. The man who occupies the premises will gladly make you a visit, informative and enjoyable. Visit when you are in to the triplet.
