Maheswarnath Temple, Triolet

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.

  • To visit absolutely! This temple is the oldest built in Mauritius. It is so beautiful, we were fortunate to have been able to visit with the person who was responsible and who provided us with a multitude of explanations. It was truly magical

  • First discovery of the Hindu religion in this temple to warm and varied colours. Holy cow, the bells ringing the calm that reigns, we'll have fear of disturbing. We have seen a family practicing an offering, a pure joy to be able to share these symbolic moments and this mixture of religion and culture. a place accessible to all and which is worth a visit for anyone who wants to understand why Maurice is so peaceful.

  • Let's go to this island's largest Hindu temple in Mauritius early in the morning, when we meet the praying faithful, living here on the island's largest community of Indo-Mauritius. After crossing the gates in the fence we go next to a giant strawberry, under his loose hanging colour from influencing. In front of the entrance to each of the properties of this complex, you should take off your shoes.
