Sagar Shiv Mandir Temple
Sagar Shiv Mandir Temple in Mauritius, was built by the Ghunowa family. It is located on the island of Goyave de Chine, Poste de Flacq, in a small bay with 2 very famous hotels around it. On the left you have the Prince Maurice and on the right, one of the first luxury hotels on the island, and the Saint Géran – named after the shipwreck in the story of Paul and Virginie.
Construction of the Sagar Shiv Mandir started in the late 70s and the temple is watched over by a 30 metre high bronze coloured statue of Lord Shiva, located at Grand Bassin, Ganga Talao.
It is a Hindu Temple that is visited by tourists, who sit and contemplate in the relaxing surroundings. You must remove your shoes before entering and be respectfully dressed
There is a thin bridge from the mainland to temple, which makes it easy to visit. Previously worshippers would wade through the water to get to the temple. All aspects of this Holy Site, the Temple, the lake Ganga Talao and the vast statues of Shiva and Durga combine to make Sagar Shiv Mandir Temple a place to visit whilst on holiday in Mauritius.
