THE DEETS

Our next stop is the Shiva temple. Just past the Islamic mosque, we come to the 1st temple and the beginning of the Hindi lane. The Hindu complex was constructed in 1958, devoting worship to Shiva, the destroyer of evil, and Krishna, the god of compassion, tenderness, and love. As part of the worshipping ritual, one gives flowers. Just to the right of this temple, you will notice a small store to purchase lovely hand-made flower necklaces. Our favourite one, Jasmine necklaces give off a lovely scent. It also acts as the perfect tribute once you’re in the temple. To enter any Hindu temple, you must take off your shoes. And from that point onwards, no photos or videography is allowed – we were not allowed to shoot inside. All the Hindus are very welcoming – strike up a conversation and ask them questions as you surely will have loads.
