Had a lovely guide with lots of information. Make sure you cover up (they have scarves/wraps for you to borrow there) and take your shoes off - also no cameras allowed inside. Lovely to look around - won't take more than half an hour/40mins as it's quite a small temple.

It's worth a visit if your in Nandi town, however I wouldn't go out my way to visit. Make sure you wear something long. It's a pretty temple it would have been nicer if there was a guided tour..

Had to visist temple. Serene surroundings gave time for some quiet meditation. Word to travellers (men), refrain from wearing 3/4 pants. The service desk was kind to provide me with a 'lungi' for the duration of our visit.

We spent half an hour walking around the temple and found it really interesting. There didn't seem to be any particular tours or other activities for visitors but we enjoyed it anyway. Make sure you wear a long skirt/long pants so that your legs are covered.

This was a sort of short stop over for us on the way to the Valley of the sleeping giant, anyway glad i had a look at it, very colourful, but as you need to be respectful inside the temple grounds you need to take all foot wear off at the front, You soon find yourself walking very fast from...

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
