I intended to spend just a short time but got caught up in its beauty. A word of warning: you have to take your shoes off to walk around. If the day is very hot,... 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.
