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

If you've visited the temples of Southern India or even those in Singapore then you may well be disappointed by this one. That said, there's not much else to do in Nadi town.

This was beautiful and an absolute must for anyone interested in another culture. A guide will take you on a tour and explain it all. I intended to spend just a short time but got caught up in its beauty. A word of warning: you have to take your shoes off to walk around. If the day is very hot,... More

It is a beautiful temple. The guide was OK, could have been more friendly, and offered more explanation of the faith.

Photos taken where indicated by guide. No pamphlets left as it was a busy month... More

This temple is authentically South Indian and could pass off for any one of those great places in TamilNadu, India. All rituals and devotional practices are followed and one can get lost in the immense serenity of the place. All major Indian religious festivals are celebrated in true style. Must stop for any traveler who has a religious bent of... More
