All reviews southern hemisphere take photos beautiful paintings hindu religion nadi town vegetarian restaurant wraps interesting place entry fee wander around fruit shoes sarong culture architecture skirt priest
I wouldn't say it's a must see..shoes need to come off but the concrete was burning hot so had to run to a cool spot.
Despite the entry fee there was no one around to explain and guide you through which was disappointing.
Stopped here after passing it numerous times. We were there later in the day and were lucky enough to meet the priest who was kind enough to walk us from station to staion and explain their lighting ceremonies and donation prayers.
Was good to have a guide explain the history and beliefs of the Hindu Temple. Beautiful statues adorned the temple inside and out and amazing art work on the walls and ceilings.
You are not permitted to take photos once inside the Temple out of...More
Closed for tourists but they didn't tell our resort. Went to town for the day and could get in.
Nadi CBD was not the greatest place. Minimal shopping, very pushy "salesmen".
I would not go back for any reason. Waste of a day.
The painting are of poor quality, there is nothing very special to see. No pictures inside the Temple. You have to be barefoot even if the soil is more than hot, so my poor feet were burned after the visit.
I would recommend walking/driving past and quickly stopping in while in Nadi. Keep in mind you must wear respectful clothing - women must cover their shoulders and wear long skirts/sarongs covering their legs. Clothing requirements are apparent in most religious temples/churches which is as expected....More
Must wear Skirt/Dress below the knees (no pants, shorts or mini skirts allowed), If you do go in short close they will provide you a sarong to wear.
No pictures can be taken inside the temple.
The temple is colourful and friendly but compared with those of south east Asia it's pretty disappointing. It seems well maintained. If you visit Nandi take a walk down the main street and at the southern end you will find it (at the start Queens...More

Getting there by your own transport is easy but i would recomend the tour as they pick you up from the hotel and take you there and answer all your questions, You can just walk up to the front receprion and give a donation and they explaign how you leave your shoes at the shoe stand and go bare foot around the inside. but i would recomend the tour. Cheers Phil
Hello , Sorry i was there mid week and it was very quiet, I gater Sunday would be quite busy. I think your hotel or resort would be able to assist with times. Is certainly a very colourful temple.

Interesting school project. The temple is on outskirts of the town of Nadi and by car it would take about 50 minutes. There are definitely buses and taxis that travel along the Queens road that runs between the two, but I could not tell you which would be easier. Presumably a normal public transport bus would take much longer as it would be stopping at villages along the way. I hope this helps you.
