a colored hindu temple

While we were visiting Nadi, we went to visit this temple. It is very colorful and lively, and people are friendly.

This is a must see, the largest Hindu temple in the South Pacific islands. Show your respect by not eating meat, fish or eggs the morning of your visit, and dressing appropriately. Long pants for men, long skirts for women or wrap around "Sulus" for either. The plaster moldings and paintings are remarkable, but you have to resist talking photos... More

As usual, dress in proper attire. Pay a 5 fjd to get it, inclusive of a sarong if required. Pictures inside the shrine is strictly prohibited. So you can actually take photos from outside the temple, which is what all tourist from the tour bus do.

The temple and small buildings dotted around were beautiful but it would have been a lot more interesting if there had been someone to explain what everything meant.

A must see in Nadi town. From outside you can see the temple but would be nice if you go inside and walk around. Fee is 5fjd. It will only take less that 45 minutes to walk around and take pictures. Pictures would be nice if the sun is high.

Have previously visited temple years ago, just for something different in Fiji. Just a temple and what you see inside not that interesting. On this occasion, attitude at gate was hostile after declining "tour". Entry cost seemed variable. Give it a miss, more spectacular Hindu temples in Asia .

Beautiful temple and that artistry was so great. you have to see it to believe. You have to cover up the knees to go inside the temple grounds and leave shoes at the door. Photos can be taken of all area except the inside of the temple. There was a restaurant on the grounds.

Enriched with Splendid South Indian Sculpture, and Prayer rituals offered mostly in south Indian tradition, this Magnificent Temple is a Must-see if you are in Nadi/Fiji. Only a few minutes walk from down town Nadi (after strolling through Nadi Market, Handicraft market, the City centre etc.) this is an Excellent place to visit and relax in the Temple's Calm, serene...
