I am a hindu person, although I would never want to say anything bad about a temple...I do not think this should be a tourist attraction. It is a very nice place for people to pray and priests and such but it is shown to tourists for the architecture and marketed as the largest hindhu temple in the southern hemisphere which is a lie, because Australia and NZ have much bigger/beautiful ones. Being Hindhu, this is a not a tourist attraction in Fiji one should see. If you are Hindu however, this is a wonderful place to visit to worship.

This temple is a very colourful, Hindu temple close to downtown Nadi. Once inside, it is very peaceful and you can wander around. The best part of us was being given a guide to all the paintings on the ceiling so that we could make some sense of the various deities.

This Temple is well worth the visit. The hand carvings alone make the visit a must. Fiji would not be same without this attraction - I always visit here when in Fiji.

I have visited many Hindu temple in different countries and this one is the most colorful. In that meaning, it is far from my impression about Hindu temples. This is hardly a must-see, but because it is in the town and it doesn't take a long time to see everything (maybe 10-15 minutes), it may be good to kill time here, when you have nothing to do.

The Hindu temple is well worth a visit. Although you cannot take pictures inside the temple (which is basically not walled in) you can stand outside and shoot in. This is a fairly new and beautifully decorated temple and the resident Swami of the day was more than happy to have his photo taken and chat with us - a lovely man. We witnessed many Indian people visiting the temple for prayer and offerings and if you go around 7pm the bells are rung for prayer time. Some great photo opportunities to be had here.
