Grand Bassin, Mauritius

Grand Bassin, Mauritius

Also called the Ganga Talao, the Grand Bassin is a sacred lake that represents the mighty Ganges River of India and is a favorite attraction among local and foreign tourists in Mauritius. It is beautifully nestled in the mountains of the South West and surrounded by colorful Hindu temples.

During your trip, you will see shrines and colorful statues that are dedicated to popular Hindu deities, such as Ganesh that can be easily recognized with his elephant head and Hanuman, which you will find on the shore of the lake.

The giant statues of beloved Hindu deities Lord Shiva and Lord Durga, which are designed by the Indian sculptor Shri Matu Ram Verma, will welcome you on arrival. 

The statue of Shiva, known as Mangal Mahadev, stands at 33 meters high making it the third largest statue of Shiva in the world. You will also see a large number of devotees praying to Hindu deities here, offering the gods fruits and vegetables and gently lighting up incense sticks.

As you watch the reflection of the small lamps flickering on the water, you will truly feel the spiritual atmosphere that the lake is known for. Adding to these things the mist that often rises from the holy lake, which will make you enjoy the scenery more. (See All : Mauritius holiday packages)
