Tourist attractions Grand Bassin Crater

Nestled in the heart of Mauritius, Grand Bassin emerges as a destination that evokes spirituality and natural wonder. Located in an extinct crater high on the island, it is considered one of the most sacred places for the Hindu community in Mauritius. Surrounded by green hills and adorned with impressive temples, Grand Bassin is a haven of peace that offers visitors a unique experience of spiritual connection amidst lush natural beauty.

Among the notable sites of Grand Bassin, the Mangal Mahadev Temple, with its imposing statue of Shiva, is an architectural marvel that attracts pilgrims and tourists. The nearby Alexandra Waterfall adds a touch of natural splendor to the surroundings, creating a mystical landscape that captivates the senses. A fascinating curiosity is the annual Maha Shivaratri celebration, where thousands of Hindu devotees carry out a procession from different parts of the island to Grand Bassin.
