The temple is simple structure with many Hindu Gods. The lake is very nice and it is a peaceful place.

It is a very peaceful and spiritual place. There are many hindu temples around. Wild monkeys are one of the biggest attractions there as they eat the fruits offerings placed from the devotees to god. Many fish and eels are omnipresent in the sacred lake....More

Won't deny that the sights were pleasant to look at, but the temples were very average and I had to go as a family obligation. On my own or with friends I wouldn't think twice before I drop the Grand Bassin for something else.

I was put off by the obvious disregard for the dress code observed by the people visiting the temple. Most religious places across the world have strict dress codes. I would blame the temple authorities for not enforcing it and pandering to tourism.

So we are driving to the black gorge and nature reserve and it was suggested we pass through Ganga Talao to see the Hindu Temples. The scenery in the area was like a lush rainforest. There is a large highway heading into this area and...More
