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...

Every 5 meters you are tackled by sellers that are try ing to get you inside there horrible shops to buy unnecessary things. after 10 shops I justignored them and... More

Very colorful and full of culture! It's a great place to wander around looking at the different gods and temples. It's best to go early because culturally, you must take off your shoes and the cement ground gets very hot!

I didn't even get to walk on the grounds but just driving passed and seeing the building was pretty interesting! At least it's one landmark I do remember, even if I didn't get much of an experience from it, it's easy on the eyes.

As its a small temple it won't take long to look around probably only take 30mins in total. It's interesting to see the different colours and intricate designs apparently all done by hand. Would have liked a guide to take us along and give more information. Be respectful and cover up ladies - they do have scarves and sulus to... More

When we went there, there was an annual prayer going on. They provided food all the time. It was fairly well organised and the committee and donors of food need to be praised for that.
