  • Beautiful place picturesque. Very humbling to see what a man with the right motivation can accomplish. One of our better historical sites.
  • Very interesting place. There is a center right besides it and when we went to visit the were a couple of pyres lit that you could see from the temple.
  • Very Nice and Relaxing place
  • Although historical and the locals and swami try their best, the place needs help with up keep. Can be a very gorgeous and enlightening place of how Trinidadians and Tobagonians live in religious harmony.
  • Built by hand over 25 years by one man. That is devotion.
