  Waterloo temple at sunset
by DSwede

The Temple by the Sea, sometimes referred to as Waterloo Temple is a nice place to visit, particularly during dusk as the sun is setting.

It is a relatively small temple, but the setting is wonderful. Entrance is free, but the gates may be locked after sunset.

Immediately adjacent to the temple parking lot is a popular cremation site. If you visit during the opportune time, you may witness ritualistic cremation and the funeral pyres.

Address: Waterloo
Directions: South of Chaguanas, exit towards Waterloo. Signs often point to both this temple, and the Hanuman statue (85' tall).

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
