The Giant God

Just thinking of something to write here on the blog and I recalled something incredible that we saw in Mauritius. I can remember how bowled over we were when we first spotted the giant statue of Shiva, the Hindu God. It was very awe inspiring and then I remember that I was driving “Jimmy”.

Earlier that day I had decided to call the quirky hire car Jimmy and I have no idea why. It may have had something to do with Richard Hammond once calling a car “Oliver”. It may also have something to do with me being a bit… Well… Bonkers.

I almost took leave of my senses but turned into a parking area before I ended up crashing into the people in front who were also gaping in awe at the seriously ginormous statue. We could have ended up as a great big pile of cars had we not been careful. Insurance companies perhaps using the clause….. “Act of God”?

If you visit Mauritius make sure you visit Grand Bassin which is near the Chamerel Falls and the Seven Coloured Earth. Not only will you see the giant Shiva but you will also get to explore a beautiful and tranquil spiritual site.Ā

      1. I have many more videos of Mauritius and especially off the Hindu Temples where this particular film was recorded. I am in the process of editing them and will get around to publishing them here.
