3.7
#2 of 10 in Historic Sites in Trinidad
Founded in 1995, Siewdass Sadhu's Temple in The Sea remains the only temple in Trinidad found resting on the water. Interestingly, oil drums filled with concrete form the foundations, tied together with steel. Flags surround the single central dome, all with different colors and meanings. Step inside the small white building to find different vibrantly colored Hindu deities.

    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.
