Mangal Mahadev is a 33 m (108 ft) tall sculpture of the Hindu god Shiva standing with his Trishula (trident) at the entrance of Ganga Talao (Grand Bassin), a crater lake situated in the district of Savanne in Mauritius. It is a replica of the Shiva statue in Sursagar lake in Vadodara, Gujarat in India and is the tallest statue in Mauritius.

Mangal Mahadev Monument was inaugurated in 2007 and the “Sthapan” was done during the Maha Shivratri period of 2008. It is considered the most sacred Hindu place in Mauritius. There are temples dedicated to other Gods including Durga, Hanuman, Lakshmi, and Ganesh around the Shiva Temple and Mangal Mahadev statue on the banks of the Grand Bassin. During Shivaratri, many pilgrims in Mauritius walk bare feet from their homes to the lake and pray at the feet of the sculpture.

Exceptional service and prompt communication

We hired Taxi Service Mauritius for 3 taxi tours. Communication with the company was easy, Devina was very responsive and kind. Our driver Nishal was very friendly, knowledgeable, polite, professional and punctual. On tours, we saw everything we wanted and Nishal showed us additional landmarks. He told us a lot about the island, history and life of locals. The car was very clean and spacious. Excellent service, we highly recommend it.

Efficient and friendly service

The booking process was straightforward and quickly confirmed. The prices were good value and had the option to pay in dollars, euros or rupees which was very useful for us. The drivers arrived ahead of time and drove safely and considerately. When I needed to change a pickup time one email was answered positively and promptly. I recommend wholeheartedly.

Very well organized, definitely recommend

We (me, my fiancé and our 7 months old daughter) booked return transfer airport-hotel-airport with this company and from the easy booking service on the internet, the great communication with the direct booking confirmation and advance notification of the driver details to the most important part, the driver and the car everything was perfectly on time and organized. We got water on each tour. Our driver Anil drove us for both trips and was super friendly and always on time. The car was brand new and super clean.

 by HellsBells30 on Taxi Service Mauritius

We prebooked our taxi service both outbound and return trips via their website which was easy to use and efficient. The driver met us at the airport the return driver collected us from our hotel as booked. The service both ways were excellent - the drivers were very friendly and most importantly, drove very safely. The service was well priced and it was good to not have to worry about negotiating with "regular" taxi drivers after a long flight. I would definitely recommend this service and would absolutely use them again.

Easy to book and affordable rate

We booked a small van for 6 of us from the airport to our private beach house in Mauritius. All worked perfect - easy booking via homepage and communication by mail, the driver picked us up with nameplate and the car was clean and equipped with baby seats for our kids. Can fully recommend this service provider!!!
