Well worth a visit if you haven't seen an Indian Temple before. It is located on the end of the main street, 5 mins from the bus station and 10 mins from Tappoo's or Jack's of Fiji. Shoes and hats need to be removed so make sure you wear something easy to slip on and off. The colours and architecture... More

The temple is at the south side of Nadi Town. It is colourful compared with the other part of the town. You have to pay a fee of F$5 as entrance fee. We didn't go inside; just browse from the outside. The temple is about a 5-10 mins walk from Jack's. If you are in Nadi Town, it is worthwhile... More

This is a beautiful temple. One of the most famous temples in Fiji. This is a south Indian temple in a couple where most of the Hindu's come from Northern India. Just go in to appreciate the colour and architecture. Free entry to boot. Combine with trip to main Nadi town as its on the end of main street Nadi.... More

If you've visited the temples of Southern India or even those in Singapore then you may well be disappointed by this one. That said, there's not much else to do in Nadi town.

This was beautiful and an absolute must for anyone interested in another culture. A guide will take you on a tour and explain it all. 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

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