It definitely attracts the eye from the roadway because of the rainbow of colours. The brochure on the ceiling paintings were a bit hard to follow. It would have been nice to have a bit of background on the religion also.

This was a really beautiful Hindu temple, and we are glad that we visited. We were asked to make a modest donation and remove our shoes before touring the temple. We were also asked not to go into the several small shrines when there were worshippers inside, and this posed no problem, as we were able to clearly see inside... More

My guide was a member of this temple, so he made sure we followed proper protocol regarding dress and photo-taking. This is a very impressive place in Nadi, and is not to be missed during your visit!

This very distinctive temple at the end of the main 'shopping' street in Nadi is a must do. If you've never seen inside a Hindu temple, it will give you a wonderful introduction to the iconography and historical background. You pay a minimal sum to enter and there are a few shrines that are off limits, but it's a very... More

If you've never been to any Hindi country this would be a good place to visit. It represents the spirit of the Indian (mostly Hindu) population in the country. Remember to wear long pants, skirt or dress. (Make sure you shoulders and knees are covered.) Visitors must take off their shoes (you can keep your socks on which can help... More

II paid $5.00 to walk barefooted in a path full of little pebbles around a brightly coloured lump of concrete. Any words would be insufficient to express my lack of satisfaction and deep disappointment provided by the most absolute waste of time I experienced in a very long time.

Having seen so many incredible Hindu temples during my travels in India, I'm not easily impressed. This was a nice diversion as there really wasn't much worth seeing in Nadi. I was very lucky that there happened to be a wedding taking place which was very lovely to watch.

This is very cool. It is very different from the usual temples you see and it is very different colors. When we visited there was a wedding going on. You do need to cover up your legs and knees or they won't let you in. There is a $5 entry fee if you're going in as a tourist.

Gorgeous temple. Visitors allowed but there are clothing restrictions. Didn't look at the male requirements but women need to be in skirts longer than the knee with shoulders covered. Hair has to be neatly tied and you cannot wear shoes inside. Not allowed photos inside and there are areas reserved for devout worshipers. Amazing experience .
