We walked around the outside as wasn't prepared to pay $5 per person to enter. No photos are allowed and you see everything from the outside. Friend went inside and saw nothing we couldn't see.

This was part of our tour. There are dress regulations and you are provided with a sarong if you do not meet them. No shoes allowed. Also you cannot take photos in the temple

An enjoyable and informative experience of a Hindu temple. Close to the centre of Nadi, it can be done in less than 15 minutes, and whether your interest is piqued by the culture, mythology, history, aesthetics or ceremonial, there should be something for everyone.

Peaceful and religious spot to worship. Taking photos inside the temple are not allowed. If you are wearing jeans or short skirts or other than saree please collect a red cloth from the counter and tie it to your waist to access the temple.

A visit to this fascinating Temple is well worthwhile. Although not what you might think of when you think of Fiji, seeing this Temple gives a traveler interesting insights into the local culture (since almost half of the population of Fiji is Indian). They cater to guests, making it easy to tour the temple with respect (they even provide cover-ups... More

After leaving the airport our driver took us past this temple and allowed us to get out of the car and take photos. We didn't go into the temple but just the view from the outside was amazing. Make sure you have your camera handy because you don't want to miss photos of this temple, this was the only one... More

Dirty place to visit.... Paid $5 each to go...I was expecting something huge (as it said it was the biggest in the Southern Hemisphere) but it wasn't even a big temple... The people were rude...Wouldn't bother going here, didn't feel peaceful or tranquil.

I was hooked from the very first sight of all the colour in and surrounding the temple.This temple has such beutiful paintings, and the guides tell the stories behind them all so beautifully and in such great detail.
