The Seychelles: The Botanical Garden and Temple

My final post from my visit to the Seychelles is about our day being tourists. We visited Victoria (which is the main town), the Botanical Gardens, and a gorgeous view point.

Victoria is small town with only a few main roads and one main market road which is busy with the friendly locals and tourists walking around. The market road leads to this gorgeous Hindu Temple.





With a population of 58,000 on the island, about 8,000 are Indians. There is so much culture and it's beautiful to see everyone living peacefully together.

Next, we went to The Seychelles National Botanical Garden, which dates back more than a century. The garden is 5 acres and houses exotic plants, spice and fruit trees, and is beautifully manicured.








One of the main reasons we went to the garden was to see the giant tortoises. With some being over 150 years old, they were actually so cute!



Lastly, we headed up to a stunning view point that looked over Eden Island. Wow! That's all I have to say. The view of the islands and the stunning ocean was worth it.
