About Ganga Talao in Mauritius

Ganga Talao, also known as Grand Bassin, is a sacred crater lake and highly revered Hindu pilgrimage destination in Mauritius. Thanks to the Indian immigration in millions done by the British during the colonial period, there is a large population of Hindus in the island country. The first pilgrims to make their journey to Grand Bassin, Mauritius was led by Pandit Giri Gossayne from the Triolet village in 1898.

Tucked in a secluded location between mountains in the Savanne district, Ganga Talao, Mauritius stands as the representative of Holy Ganges for those who are away from their homeland. While his stay as an indentured laborer, Pandit Sanjibanlal took a liking to the Grand Bassin Lake, Mauritius and he later came back as a merchant to establish this place as a Hindu pilgrimage site dedicated to Lord Shiva. The divine beauty of the lake only added to the spiritual appeal of the place.

Here stands the Shiva statue of Mauritius, 108 ft tall with his trident and Ganges flowing out of his tresses. Unveiled in 2007, this is the tallest statue of Mauritius. There is a similar statue of his eternal consort, Durga Mata as well, but not as tall. The Sagar Shiv Mandir with the lingam is the main shrine here. During the nights of Maha Shivratri, the Grand Bassin Temple of Mauritius gets a huge crowd of devotees who cover the journey between their home and the temple walking barefoot to offer puja to Lord Shiva.

    Manoj's 5 days trip to Mauritius

    The overall experience was OK, not so great. Room preparation for the honeymoon was not as expected completely below par. Further, my travel bookings were complete as per the local vendor linked completely differently from the travel agent mentioned in the itinerary. He took us for his designated location for water sports, shopping, etc. and not any place if we want to. Timing for different locations was very bad, beaches did not have time for more than 1 hour however it was the main thing in our itinerary.

    Anurag Jain

    Delhi

    Anurag's 6 days trip to Mauritius

    Overall experience of the trip was quite good, amidst the fear of corona everywhere, We were still able to enjoy our trip in Mauritius as it is the least affected country. This was our honeymoon trip and so we were very excited. With honeymoon-couples all over the trip, the stay at Hotel Intercontinental was phenomenal. With four different restaurants, serving various categories of food like Asian, Indian, Mediterranian etc. It was a good experience. The travel guides serving and guiding us while travelling within Mauritius (On SIT basis) were quite polite and helpful. We were welcomed at the hotel and was provided with an ocean facing room and a sparkling wine(Local made) to add glitters to the experience. Though, With the price, I paid for this trip, I would rate the overall experience of the booking, co-ordination and stay as 3.8/5. The reason of my rating is due to the below factors: Three major issues, I want to highlight are 1. Though, we were told by our travel partner(Travel-Triangle/aaojao.com) that we'll be given a welcome Polo-Tshirts but the same was NOT provided as there were no stock of the same in the hotel. 2. Room Decoration : Hotel room was not at all decorated as expected. Only few rose petals were put on the bed with two towels folded in the ♥ form. 3. Drinking Water: One of the most essentials, while travelling is the drinking water. At the hotel, it became a massive surprise for us, when we were told to buy expensive water bottles while at lunch/Dinner. Also, Complimentary water bottles were'nt provided on time in our rooms for first two days later they started providing two times a day and on-time. Please Note: At Intercontinental, as per the policy of the hotel, It should provide 2-3 water bottle - two times a day. I may recommend others for this trip provided, all get what is promised and No last-minute surprises for water atleast!! The Under water sea walk and the sea beach at hotel!!

    The arrangements were good. Our trip went well. It was a couple trip to Mauritius and it went almost the way we expected. It's just that it was very tiring waiting on airport on the layover of flights.
