Best place to visit in Durban. You will enjoy every second you are there. Most beautiful architecture. Great restaurant in the Temple. Don't miss this one.

“Highly recommend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2012

I don't know if I would consider this a "must-see" for a visit to Durban, but I really enjoyed it and would certainly return. I came around lunch time during the week, and it was fairly busy, but not too crowded. There were some musicians playing and chanting/singing loudly when I arrived, which was interesting to see. Others came and left for brief worship while I sat around the edge of the temple. I'm not sure if there were other tourists there or just regular visitors. The grounds surrounding the temple are very beautiful and peaceful. The food in the vegetarian restaurant was quite good.
