Changy Hindu Temple

Architecture - Capesterre Belle-Eau

Built between 1973 and 1974 by René Komla on the site of a chapel dedicated to Maliémin that had stood for more than a century, this temple, a striking monument, with its elaborate “gopuram” tower and ornate main façade, is without a doubt the sanctuary most frequented by the island’s Hindu community. A place of pilgrimage and reflection, it also hosts ceremonies at the request of the faithful who wish to receive its graces. The carvings of primary deities, by Tamil sculptor Ganapathy, direct from India, are the pride of the community. In addition to the main hall dedicated to Maliémin, the temple features sanctuaries devoted to Vinayagar, the elephant god; Saraswati, protector of arts and literature; and Maldevilin, guardian of the temple.
