Trinidad Hanuman Temple
A magnificent 85-foot tall statue of the Hindu god, Lord Hanuman is located in the village of Carapichaima, Trinidad. Built according to the Dravidian style of architecture of South India, this is the largest Hanuman murti outside India.
Hanuman is known as the best warrior among the Hindu gods since he protects others from evil. He is considered the most revered disciple of Lord Rama for his efforts and bravery in defeating Ravan and assisting Lord Ram, Seeta and Ram’s brother Lakshman.
Devotees pray to him for strength, courage and protection. No wonder he stands tall at 85 feet on the grounds of the Dattatreya Yoga Center and Mandir in Carapachaima. His magnificence is a reminder to all devotees that they should grow in height spiritually.
The statue, consecrated in 2003, is the tallest in the Western hemisphere and second tallest in the world. To get to the temple from Port of Spain: Proceed south on the highway. The Temple is in the Sea.
