First time in a Hindu temple. Interesting! You need to cover your legs if you are an adult but they provide the way! 5$F (2.5$usa) you can see the monks and do offerings if you please. They also give you a paper guide explaining the paintings. No photos allowed inside.

Best of the best which any artist can display, you just have to be there to be mesmerized by the drawings and architectural designs.

The temple is very pretty. There are sometimes people there to give a brief tour of the temple and i found that to be interesting and informative. The temple itself is peaceful with fantastic architecture.

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

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

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.
