This is a beautiful Tamil temple in Grand Baie and great for photographs. On a very busy road with hardly any pavement and even less parking, so be prepared to walk a bit.

Not huge or spectacular, but small and very peaceful. I took time to shed the shoes and visit inside as well, and will follow up with research of the various shrine objects. I'm sure it will be in sightful.

Not really worth the trip. It's clean and tidy, but we were ready to move on really quickly. If you're in the area, it's fine, but don't go out of your way.
