3.4
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Fiji
Visit the largest Hindu temples in the Southern Hemisphere at Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple. The temple features traditional Dravidian architecture painted in colors bright enough to make your eyes ache. Look for wooden carvings of Hindu deities sent from India and intricate ceiling frescoes. Check ahead of time for festivals occurring during your visit, like Karthingai Puja held monthly when visitors make offerings and receive blessings. Remember to wear modest clothing and remove your shoes at the entrance. Photos are not permitted inside the temple.

  • Not the biggest temple i have seen the best i have seen was in malaysia. They are doing maintenance at the moment for upcoming festival so a lot of it was covered up.  more »
  • I'm not of the faith so perhaps I'm missing something? Some beautiful artwork and architecture. I really don't have much to say here. Parking was easy but there is a fee and no shoes are allow.  more »
  • Reputedly the largest Hindu temple in the Southern Hemisphere, there is no doubt it is very colourful and interesting and a good place to visit while in Nadi.  more »

  • Nice temple, big and maintained well. It will definitely bring you memories of South Indian temples for everyone. If you are entering temple as a tourist then there is an entry free or if you enter as a pilgrimage with flowers and fruits then it is free. Also there is a dress code they follow, they do rent dhotis and cover clothes for men and women. There is a vegetarian cafe inside the premise, which is really good. Don’t miss to try it..But they don’t open all the time. They sell good vada, tea, idli and meals for reasonable price.
  • family fun temple but its nothing compared to indias big dick temples
  • Beautiful temple. What made the trip great was the knowledgeable, friendly guide - well worth the ten dollars! The vegetarian cafe has excellent samosas and masala tea, too, for $1 each.
  • Compared to the temples of South India, this place is nothing. However, the colors are wild and the place is well-kept.
  • There isn't much to see in Nadi except fruit market, a couple of shops and this temple. Certainly worth visit. If it happen to be your first Hindu temple you will love all the colours and statues . If you don't have a sarong they will borrowed it to you. Be prepare to be ask for a small donation.

Where to stay in Nadi

With the majority of visitors to Fiji passing through Nadi, the town caters to every budget and traveler. For maximum convenience, stop in Martintar, which lies right on the (noisy) main bus route. If you want something quieter, more economical, or a little more scenic, consider the affordable, peaceful resorts of Newtown and Wailoaloa beaches--even if the beaches aren't exactly the best Fiji has to offer. Just west of Nadi lie the luxury resorts and private beaches of Denarau Island, where you can stay in comfort and style, as long as you don't mind splashing a bit of cash.
