Guess Where? (May 2009) – Eiffel Tower in Mauritius?

Ok Ok, its not exactly the famous Eiffel Tower which most of you know.

It is a miniaturized copy of the Eiffel Tower.

I am pretty sure that many among you did not even know its existence in Mauritius!

So, the game of today is about finding/guessing the location of this tower…

As you can see, it is actually in renovation…

I am sure there will be quite a lot of winners for this one… Quite easy for those who live in the region.

Even if we have plenty of answers, I hope that I have made many discover this part of our island.

btw, I will give a prize for the next game, my promise!

Let’s start… Guess where?

Please provide the name of the exact location.

@Saajid : No, it can’t be on a beach somewhere in the universe lol!

@ReenaDKL : Don’t quote all the places you have been 😛

btw, I am currently looking for other interesting pictures from all round the island, feel free to mail me!

UPDATE (3May09)

99.9% got it right!!!

This picture of the miniaturized (copy of) Eiffel Tower had been taken in Curepipe.

Congrats to all of you.

Instead of quoting the name of the winners, here are their comments  listed below!

Keep tuned for the next game, and I will be looking for a price to offer 🙂

  1. I know I know!

    The miniature Eiffel tower is found in Curepipe! It’s in a place called “The Sablonniere”. I’m not sure what this place has become now but if I remember well, it used to be a historic house open to the public. The Eiffel tower is in the gardens.

  8. It is in Curepipe Forest Side area

    The place is a shop selling apparently duty free persian carpets

    It is a real arabian type of market. Price quoted for a carpet can start say with 10,000 Euros. After bargaining, you buy it for 100 Euros, and still leave with a bitter taste and wonder whether you have been conned

    Run by some enterprising Pakistani or Kashmiri family

    Even have your carpet delivered at the airport (you worry whether you would ever see it again)
