Grand Bassin, Mauritius
Go on Pilgrimage to Ganga TalaoGrand Bassin, a large volcanic crater lake, is situated high in the hills near Black River Gorges. While the lake itself is a draw for nature lovers, this scenic spot is also home to Ganga Talao, the most sacred Hindu spot on the island.
Take your own pilgrimage there to see the towering statue of Shiva guarding the lake, as well as the local temple dedicated to him. Wander around and learn more about the Hindu religion—and how it is celebrated by the locals.
