special characteristic

buildings are located next to each other in the centre of Paramaribo and have been known to share a parking facility during their respective religious rites, should they happen to coincide with one another. A relatively new landmark is the Hindu Arya Dewaker temple in the Johan Adolf Pengelstraat in Wanica, Paramaribo, which was inaugurated in 2001. A special characteristic of the temple is that it does not have images of the Hindu divinities, as they are forbidden in the Arya Samaj, the Hindu movement to which the people who built the temple belong. Instead, the building is covered by many texts derived from the Vedas and other Hindu scriptures. The beautiful architecture makes the temple a tourist attraction.

crime site

venturing at night alone. Try using a bike when possible. When in Paramaribo at night, avoid the Palm Garden as this is a well known crime site where much drug trade is done. The police force is only so large and can only protect you to a certain extent. Therefore, stay where you know police protection is offered. So please, use common sense when venturing outside downtown, which in itself can have problems. Do NOT venture to the bush (binnenland) alone. Stay healthy To enter Suriname

'''Suriname''' ( ), is a country on the northeastern Atlantic coast of South America. It is bordered (Borders of Suriname) by French Guiana to the east, Guyana to the west and Brazil to the south.

Suriname was colonized by the English and the Dutch (Dutch Republic) in the 17th century. In 1667 it was captured by the Dutch, who governed Suriname as Dutch Guiana (Surinam (Dutch colony)) until 1954. At that time it was designated as one of the constituent countries (constituent country) of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, next to the Netherlands and the Netherlands Antilles (dissolved (dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles) in 2010). On 25 November 1975, the country of Suriname (Suriname (Kingdom of the Netherlands)) left the Kingdom of the Netherlands to become independent (independence). A member of CARICOM (Caribbean Community), it is considered to be a culturally Caribbean country and has extensive trade and cultural exchange with the Caribbean nations.

At just under , Suriname is the smallest sovereign state in South America. (French Guiana, while less extensive and populous, is an overseas department of France.) Suriname has a population of approximately 566,000, most of whom live on the country's north coast, where the capital Paramaribo is located. Suriname is a mostly Dutch (Dutch language)-speaking country; Sranang (Sranan Tongo), an English (English language)-based creole language (English creole), is a widely used ''lingua franca''. It is the only independent entity in the Americas where Dutch is spoken by a majority of the population.
