    What you will Do and See

     Hindu Temple and Statue Experience

    First stop on this tour is Central Trinidad to visit the 85 ft Hanuman Murti, the largest such murti outside of India.  From there we move on to the Temple in the Sea, a Hindu pilgrimage sight built by one man, Siewdass Sadhu, over a period of 25 years in testament to his religion. After being denied the opportunity to build the temple on land near the water, he decided to build the temple in the sea.

    Visit the Caroni Swamp and Bird Sanctuary

    We then head to the Caroni Swamp and Bird Sanctuary for a 4PM guided tour by boat through the Caroni Swamp, the second largest mangrove wetland in Trinidad and home to our national bird, the Scarlet Ibis.  Witness the return of these beautiful birds, as waves of red light up the sunset sky as they alight on the surrounding mangrove to roost for the night.
