A daily scene captured on the shores of the basin of the Hindu temple "Maheswarath" located in Triolet, in the region of Pamplemousses.
The Mauritius Hindu temples are the place where the Hindu people come to worship the Brahman. The Hinduism is represented by the faith in Brahman, the absolute being, impersonal, creator of the Universe. The Brahman is the supreme ego. He can’t be defined unless spoken what is not. Going to the Mauritius Hindu temples you will find out that Brahman is described as infinite, omnipresent, omnipotent, intangible, transcendent reality, infinite conscience and infinite happiness. According to the Veda, Brahman has been existed and will be forever. He is in all the things but transcends all the things and he is the divine source of the entire Life. Is the divine absolute, all the Hindu religion’s gods are facets and incarnations of Brahman. The Mauritius Hindu temples are attractions for the tourists, as holy and worship places. hindu in mauritiusThe Mauritius Hindu Maheswarath Temple is situated in the Triolet city and is one of the island’s biggest temple complexes. It was built in 1850, is colourfully painted and with much bright white. The Mauritius Hindu temple is easy to be found on roads to Grand Baie or Trou aux Biches.

bello scatto, diverso dalle solite foto sulle Mauritius, tutte spiaggia e mare, è bello vedere anche la popolazione locale, con i loro usi e costumi.
Mi sembrano molto interessanti anche i riflessi, magari ce li proponi in seguito :)
pierrefonds (66855) 2014-02-22 16:09
Tu as bien capturé l'action des personnes qui prient au temple. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de leurs vêtements. La bonne luminosité donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.
PaulVDV (29147) 2014-02-22 16:20
A very beautiful and certainly colourful scene of the religious and daily life of these people.
The colours are also nicely reflected on the wet pavement on the foreground.
Best regards, Paul
Periko (5332) 2014-02-22 16:32
Colorful scene, despite the rainy day, and interesting attitude of people.
I like the concept of Brahman.
ACL1978 (7511) 2014-02-22 16:38
Beautiful shot of this ceremony, Luciano, with vivid colors and a lot to take in. You've caught the worshippers in varied and excellent poses, demonstrating the action well. Perhaps a bit too much HDR for me, but these are all issues of personal taste. Lovely shot!
chris04stop (6805) 2014-02-22 16:42
Una splendida immagine. Rappresentativa di qualunque religione: tutti noi, in realtà, preghiamo il nostro Dio, senza sapere dove sia...Grande Luciano!
macjake (68432) 2014-02-22 17:54
Ah yes, I could tell this was HDR the moment i first viewed it....it just has that look and feel to it.
And as we both know, some TE members love it, some don't like it at all - but thats great too.
the little girl on the left is the cutest of them all.
love how the rocks stand out, as well as the Sari in the middle.
nice shot as you always do!
Corry (4508) 2014-02-22 20:24
Très belle scène de la vie locale avec beaucoup de couleurs qui se reflètent sur la chaussée mouillée. Bien fait.
shreya2000 (2549) 2014-02-22 21:45
Good to see the rituals of our Hindu community in Mauritius through your pic. This is quite similar to the rituals in India.
emka (98706) 2014-02-22 23:03
Ciao Luciano, A scene like many one can observe in India. Nice capture. Was it raining? The street looks wet and must be fun to go there bare foot.
Warm regrads MAlgo
jjcordier (79297) 2014-02-22 23:28
Intéressante scène, très colorée, de préparation des offrandes au temple. Tu as assez bien maîtrisé ton HDR, même si cela donne un peu un effet maquillage sur certains visages.
SnapRJW (31629) 2014-02-22 23:54
A colourful DL Mauritian scene Luciano. Your shot includes a colourful collection of worshipers and their offerings. I do like the father.... he seems more interested in what is happening elsewhere than in making his obeisance! Have a great Sunday. Rosemary
ikeharel (72131) 2014-02-23 0:55
The island of Mauritius is know with its Hindu large community, and their tradition is part of the rutine there - no wonder you encountered with.
Fine colorful saries and cloths, a private ceramony under way, so you stood in a respectable distance, yet managed a nice pic. about.
jmdias (64918) 2014-02-23 1:12
interesting photo, the faith is well shown in the expressions of the people. nice use of the light under this humid moment. very nice note where I knew more things about this religion. TFS.

Bonjour, cher Luciano,
Un moment de prière fort bien mis en valeur. Le résultat est excellent.
La note d'accompagnement est édifiante à tous points de vue.
Très bonne journée.
Subhogen (4067) 2014-02-23 2:04
This is a superb DL shot. Love the reverence you have captured on the faces of these devotees as they pray. The items of offering like the coconuts and bananas are interesting as well. The traditional attire on these Indian origin people in a foreign country are very colourful. Fantastic presentation with a well written note. Thanks for sharing.
besnard (56447) 2014-02-23 2:07
Une bonne prise de cette scène de la vie quotidienne qui donne une image intéressante et colorée.
saxo042 (37888) 2014-02-23 2:13
A very interesting and colourful scene. Also a very readable note. A very good TE contribution!
krzychu30 (15512) 2014-02-23 2:41
interesting daily-life scene from Mauritius.You follow here perfectly TE rule to learning the world through photography.
Although after recent photos I´m rather careful in HDR and people,but here I must say the result is fantastic!
Strong,evocative and having very expressive graphics shot!
Have a nice sunday
timecapturer (49288) 2014-02-23 2:48
a wonderfully expressive image this and you have captured the emotion and atmosphere of this ceremony so delicately. Lots of colour and the reflections add to the intensity powerfully. Beautifully tender imagery.
Graal (102928) 2014-02-23 3:30
interesting scene. Good shot and presentation here. Fine effect of HDR pp. Great trip you had. Photo I like.
Have a nice day.
ourania (46234) 2014-02-23 3:43
l' hdr ha un effetto un po' accentuato sulle tessiture ma i colori intensi sono molto gradevoli. Mi piace molto la prospettiva sottile e l' inquadratura stretta che esaltano le persone e l' interazione fra di loro. Le attivita' e le attitudini diverse sono interessanti, allo stesso tempo il gruppo presenta una scena tranquila ed armoniosa. I riflessi fanno un complemento incantevole. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona domenica,
jhm (153674) 2014-02-23 3:51
Prayer and the offering, this shall are for these family are very important.
You brought these family excellent in image.
Sharpness and clarity make these picture attractive.
Wonderful composition, nice presentation.
Very we done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,
Romano46 (18472) 2014-02-23 4:15
non è che io abbia una particolare passione per l'HDR in quanto una certa falsificazione della realtà è sempre presente in esso, ma poichè la fotografia spesso è anche interpretazione della realtà non è male cimentaris anche in questo genere di foto.
Il mio era esagerato, ma il mio scopo era quello di trasformare una foto in qualcosa di simile ad un acquerello, nel tuo caso invece è una interpretazione di un mondo ricco di colori quale è apparso ai tuoi occhi e mi sembra che sia stato apprezzato a giudicare dal punteggio e personalmente non mi dispiace.
Però anche io sono della tua idea: meglio non allontanarsi troppo dalla realtà.
Anche perchè il mondo di TE è un mondo strano e non sai mai dove vai a parare.
Ciao e buona domenica
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2014-02-23 4:31
wow, what a composition Luciano, I like how you framed with those actions of hindu rituals. It is a new knowledge to me about this place where such hindu rituals are used to be performed. Great light and colours. Done focus on those people and good light. Overall a Nice one indeed. Tfs.
delpeoples (58278) 2014-02-23 5:02
I colori sono strabilianti, anche i riflessi. Hai colto un momento decisive. Questa gente interessante ed in preghiera. Incredibile che la gente Indú esistono nei luoghi come questi. Anche in Malesia, vivono in pace con il popolo. Grazie per la foto stupenda e la nota molto informative.
Un abbraccio e bella domenica, tra 5 ore, mi alzo per lavoro :(
karacabeylis (1465) 2014-02-23 5:26
a great moment has been captured perfectly. both the colors and framing is masterly.
pajaran (61158) 2014-02-23 7:37

Ciao Luciano, gran bella scena, delizioso il riflesso, splendidi colori, magnifica luce e ottima nitidezza, bravo, ciao Silvio
ChrisJ (114585) 2014-02-23 14:34
For a moment I thought you had been to India or Nepal! Good daily life scene capture of the people in prayer with good sharpness and nice reflections in the wet pavement. Marvellous warm cold colour contrasts between the red and blue attire of the worshipers. Tfs!
mohammad_H (9904) 2014-02-23 23:45
Beautiful views of customs and beliefs, the Hindus
Special events, alongside the River Gifts
Have a nice day
danos (98427) 2014-02-24 1:40
very nice this daily snapshot from the Hindu people that worship with this way near Maheswarath temple.I like the beautiful event as the excellent presentation of the place.
PS Really my photo was not so real,but it was an experimentation about the sky.
John_F_Kennedy (43665) 2014-02-24 7:48
The perspective to capture this impressive view is excellent. Lovely detail and so colourful. Well done.
Fis2 (98503) 2014-02-24 9:00
Interesting scene from daily life.
Good frame and colors.
Excellent reportage shot.
Have a nice evening
SimoAle (646) 2014-02-24 10:47
il tuo viaggio è bellissimo ed esci spesso dalla solita cartolina paradisiaca di questo splendido mare. Una bella dedica per questa popolazione che vive immersa nella natura. Ottimi i colori e luce. Anche il riflesso nell acqua risalta la scena.
Gigidusud (21151) 2014-02-24 11:03
A première vue je pensais que tu étais en Inde! Très jolie scène de vie quotidienne bien capturée avec de belles couleurs. J'aime beaucoup!
batalay (38911) 2014-02-24 17:30
What a superb capture of the religious ritual. I understand there is a large Hindu presence on the island, and one could easily have guessed this shot to be from mainland India. The composition, color and details are first rate.
RhodieIke (11744) 2014-02-25 1:24
Splendid capture of these people in their offering to their beliefs and religion.
Super colours, looks good in HDR, Well managed and presented. Great interesting note, Tfs,
Royaldevon (39340) 2014-02-25 2:03
Ciao Caro Luciano,
Thank you for including these notes, which are an important addition to complement your photograph.
This is a most interesting and attractive shot. The small triangle of reflections is understated but has power beyond its size.
I love how we have the opportunity to study these people, unaware of your presence and devoutly lost in their very private thoughts. It is a real privilege to see them.
Thanks for sharing this and have a great day,
adramad (45990) 2014-02-25 6:41
A fantastic scene of daily life within the Hindu community, has attracted so splendid this group of people performing their prayers and offerings, delightful colors and details to recreate.
A beautiful job very well done.
With good lighting and sharpness.
Have a nice day.
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-02-25 7:32
Very nice capture of this solemn moment and good documentation of the daily life of people. Good lighting and nice details with wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
williamcoombs1 (363) 2014-02-26 7:10
This is such an interesting moment that you've captured brilliantly! All of the detail - the faces, hands, offerings, discarded peels - form a delicate cross-section of culture. Great use of colours too.
kato (11630) 2014-02-27 8:42
You're capturing well this Hindu ceremony at riverside by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the Indian prayers of adult and children who wear traditional clothes, and the offering, such as flower and food. It looks like the religious custom for Hindu people. And, it's also impressive in colorful clothes.
COSTANTINO (65742) 2014-02-28 1:54
ho bevuto un bel espresso e volevo salutarti
Bellissima e molto interesante foto
di vita tradizionale belli colori e splendidi riflessi
shevchenko (20548) 2014-02-28 2:51
Lively shot to show a group of believers that worshipping at the narrow space, their colourful traditional costumes are so beautiful, distinct photo, informative note and interesting composition, well done.
Cricri (120119) 2014-02-28 9:51
Très jolie scène de ce moment de prière et d'offrande, belle dans le rendu des couleurs et des détails, un HDR excellent

spero che dalle poche parole che scriverò si capisca l'entusiasmo che mi suscita questa foto!!! Davvero stupenda, soggetto colori e qualità al top!!!
mcmtanyel (23287) 2014-03-02 16:50
This is a splendid photo of these devoted Hindus. I like the sharpness and the brilliant colors.
nikkitta (17066) 2014-03-04 11:38
Love India , people and colorful dresses and ceremonies, all these present in this well taken capture where there also good reflections
From far my prefered is the serious little girl with the pink dress
Angshu (56758) 2014-03-04 22:45
When I saw this picture without seeing the country, I thought you had come to India (without telling & meeting me ;-))
Its surprising when you mention the temples to be of Brahman...actually its Brahma & not Brahman...Brahma is the Creator as per Hindu mythology
Also its interesting because in India, which is the main country & birthplace of Hinduism, we have only very few temples of Brahma & much more of the other two entities of the Trinity...Vihnu & Shiva
Nice picture here showing the rituals
Cheers & Have a nice day!
adores (45595) 2014-03-21 16:53
This reminds me of India:)! Good daily scene, so colourful and with lots of details. They seem really concentrated on their prayers. Did you get any photos with the reflections? They seem really nice also.
taypejka (1689) 2014-04-12 12:31
Thank you for the useful note as I've never been in Mauritius and maybe never will be :).The photo is really of good quality with sufficient sharpness and vivid colours.
aliabazari (16170) 2014-09-22 21:34
Spiritual Moment at Hindu temple. People attending the ceremony was lovely and beautiful. Very good shot. Thank-you
