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.

This was a nice and cultural trip. I was on a tour of Nadi and this was the first stop. Loved seeing the architecture and paintings and seeing some of the locals offering a sacrifice and praying.

The temple on the southern side of Nadi is worth the trip. You have to pay a small fee and take your shoes off and then you're free to walk around.

The roof paintings are stunning. The rules a little more noticeable after dealing with Balinese temples. Definitely worth a look.

Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple must be one of Nadi's most overlooked delights. The colour, culture and friendly attendants are a credit to the ethnic diversity of the town. Don't pass up the opportunity to walk along to the end of the main street and immerse yourself, you won't be disappointed. Oh and don't forget no meat for brekkie or lunch... More

Lovely hour spent here learning about the wonderful painting with a personal tour included in $5FJ price. Got to see a car being blessed and take some great photos in areas where it is allowed. My 'priest' guide even took some photos!

We found this purely by mistake as our "dodgy" tour guard insisted on taking us to the Land of the Sleeping Giant after numerous attempts off telling him NO! It looks very beautiful from the outside but we had to pay to go inside and take out shoes off so we choose not to. Still something to see which you... More

To be honest, I had been around nadi but never been to this temple. Finally decided to check the place out and it was great. A very clean, holy and beautiful place. Great temples with beautifull statues of gods and they have a excellent canteen as well, nice dosa. Please since this is a cultural site. No shorts

it was interesting to go, but don't expect to be blown away by the beauty or anything. Note that you can't wear shoes, and women need to be covered with scarves.
