Limited hours and limited welcome
Mar 2021
This is a review as a tourist, not a worshipper.
We arrived here in the early afternoon, following a travel guide's recommendation that the temple was a real gem. We never got to see it, since during Covid it was only open for a very limited time in the evening (after 4pm I believe). Again, just speaking as a tourist, we weren't impressed by the outside and never got to see inside. There was a waiting line marked off but not really any instructions. As we tried to figure it out we were approached by a gentleman and told the temple was closed and asked what we wanted. We felt awkward and unwelcome. Sadly, I can't recommend this as a place for tourists.

The temple has the traditional Shiva Lingam and Nandhi, which is pretty much all you can ask for. There is also a Shirdi shine which is much bigger, but I guess the donations work differently for different Gods.

Due to COVID, the visiting hours are only half-hour. So if you want to ensure you see God, make sure you are standing in line by 7.15 in the morning and 6.15 in the evening. The line moves pretty fast.

They don't let you stand and Pray for more than about 5 seconds, so just make use of the time given..

Soulful, peaceful, my visit to Dubai is never complete without a darshan here
Mar 2020
Very close to the Dubai museum and at a walkable distance from Al Fahidi station, are two temples & a gurudwara. If I am not sure this is the only temple in Dubai.

Radha Krishna temple as you enter the lane and the Shiva Temple once you enter the bylanes. The Shiva temple houses the Gurudwara on the top floor. Once you enter the temple street you might tend to forget that you are actually in Dubai.

The Shiva temple is a home for many Hindu Gods including Sai Baba, I am a staunch believer of. None of my visits to Dubai are complete without taking the darshan at the temple.

Its a place of worship and does not necessarily restrict to someone with Hindu faith. As long as you believe in God and would not hurt the sentiments of the community, please bow your head at this place and may all your wishes come true, as mine did!!

Love & Light to all.

Peaceful and well managed but small place
Nov 2019
It is not must visit attraction in Dubai. However, one will feel good, if visits this temple (at first floor), having Gurudwara also (at 2nd floor). Location of the temple is very good, just walking distance from Dubai Museum. Temple is well managed and neat & clean. Actually, in the temple street, you will not feel that your in Dubai.

Heavenly feeling

There are two temples in Dubai, one of Lord Krishna and the other of Lord Shiva, everyone should definitely try to visit both. Both the temples are nearby only.

I loved this place. I didn't know about this place earlier. But luckily one of my friends took me to Shiva Temple. The place was really peaceful and I spent a lot of time with my family.

A perfect Hindu worship place....
May 2019 • Family
The place where every Hindu can go and worship, as it has all idols that we can think of. Gurudwara, Sai baba, Shiva, Ganesha idols..all of them under 1 roof. Its a bit small to accommodate many people, but highly recommended.

A small but popular place of worship
Oct 2018 • Solo
The Shiva Temple in Bur Dubai, along with the neighbouring Krishna temple, are the only places of worship for Dubai's Hindu community and as a result, these tend to be quite busy at almost all times. Located next to the Grand Mosque in a building, one needs to climb stairs to reach the temple.

The temple has idols and photo frames of Lord Shiva, Goddesses Parvati and Durga as well as of Sai Baba. The temple gives tasty prasadam. There is also a small Gurudwara on the floor above, which one must visit, after covering one's head as customary.
