Mauritius Temples
 

Mauritius Island is a multi-cultural country; the reason is that when the island was discovered, which was by the Dutch who landed on the island, then came the British, the French and started to live on the island and brought slaves from India, Africa, Madagascar and other places. After the abolition of slavery lot of the slaves stayed on the island and started a new life. Chinese came to make business and it happened that some business men stayed and married on the island. This is what made Mauritius an island with almost all cultures of the world. There is a big percentage of Indians living in Mauritius whose ancestors were slaves, this is why there is a large number of temples all around the island. One of the most visited and popular temple of Mauritius is found at Grand Bassin. But in almost each corner there is or a temple, or a church or a mosque.
