It is a beautiful temple. The guide was OK, could have been more friendly, and offered more explanation of the faith.

As Fiji is populated by Fijians and Indians it is exceptional that one can enjoy fire dancing and other Fijian cultural dances and customs as well as visit this Hindu Temple. $5Fjd paid at the canteen allows you loan of sari and a tour guide. Photos taken where indicated by guide. No pamphlets left as it was a busy month... More

This temple is authentically South Indian and could pass off for any one of those great places in TamilNadu, India. All rituals and devotional practices are followed and one can get lost in the immense serenity of the place. All major Indian religious festivals are celebrated in true style. Must stop for any traveler who has a religious bent of... More

We stumbled across this lovely temple on a visit to busy Nadi town, it was lovely to go inside and enjoy the peacefulness and colorful shrines and temple. They also have a small cafe providing authentic indian food (but very basic). A good experience for adults and children

It is what you put into it. Make sure to pick up a pamphlet, which describes the beautiful murals throughout the temple. Dress appropriately, women cover your shoulders and wear a long skirt.

This was a nice and cultural trip. I was on a tour of Nadi and this was the first stop. Loved seeing the architecture and paintings and seeing some of the locals offering a sacrifice and praying.

The temple on the southern side of Nadi is worth the trip. You have to pay a small fee and take your shoes off and then you're free to walk around.

The roof paintings are stunning. The rules a little more noticeable after dealing with Balinese temples. Definitely worth a look.

Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple must be one of Nadi's most overlooked delights. The colour, culture and friendly attendants are a credit to the ethnic diversity of the town. Don't pass up the opportunity to walk along to the end of the main street and immerse yourself, you won't be disappointed. Oh and don't forget no meat for brekkie or lunch... More

Lovely hour spent here learning about the wonderful painting with a personal tour included in $5FJ price. Got to see a car being blessed and take some great photos in areas where it is allowed. My 'priest' guide even took some photos!
