The Spiritual Park of Mauritius established since 1986 has been serving the Hindu community of all denominations through religious and educational activities.
The monthly Ganesha Homa, the major monthly religious event of the Park, is attended by thousands of pious devotees every month.

Thousands of pilgrims have been coming to the Park on Mahasivaratree to pour the sacred water from Ganga Talao on the Narmada Lingum at the Spiritual Park.

Bhakti is very high…
Some devotees are seated on mats outside the tent while others would remain standing all through the ceremony.
Even the space on the edge of our small koi fish pond is occupied.
It is becoming a tradition for women to light earthen lamps and leave them at the small Pancha Mukha Ganapati shrine.

A testimony from a young lady who has been a laureate for the HSC exams 2010. Miss Varuna Kurnauth, a student of Queen Elizabeth College, explained how Lord Ganesha helped her in her studies and told all the youth present how they should study hard if they want to excel and make a difference in their exams.

"Temples with multiple deities can be confusing, especially for today's Hindu youth. For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination. For spiritual advancement it is best to focus on one deity and get to the vibration that deity. When we hear teachings from various Hindus, it is important to understand and identify which denomination they are speaking from. This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."
