"A Picturesque Sacred Lake"

Nestled in the heart of Mauritius, the shimmering waters of the Ganga Talao surrounded by infinite verdant stretches form a spectacular canvas of colors. A revered site of Hindu worship in Mauritius, magnificent statues and temples characterize the pellucid waters of this lake. Formerly known as ‘Pari Talao’ due to the folktales associated with it, the lake was renamed after the sacred Indian river, Ganga. The alabaster Sagar Shiv Mandir on the lake shores is one of the most revered Hindu shrines in Mauritius. Home to the tallest statue in Mauritius, the 108 feet (33 meters) tall Shiva statue dominates other figurines of Hindu deities. Displaying spectacular vibrancy and devotion, thousands of pilgrims walk barefoot to the lake during the grand celebrations of Mahashivratri.
