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.

  • I went to this temple because I had read in a hotel brochure that it was the oldest Hindu temple in the Southern Hemisphere. It certainly didn't seem to be & the priest said it was built in the 90s (s...  more »
  • Called in here as it is one of the main places to see. $5 gets you entrance and a tour. Definitely worth the visit. Our guide spent about ten mins with us, explained a lot and walked us around the com...  more »
  • Maybe that's just because I'm not Hindi. Not worth it. $5 tourist fee? No thank you. Not very friendly either.  more »

  • On May 15th I stopped to drop off donation in donation box but I was in my shorts. I took my shoes at the gate n entered the temple. I came up front near Ganesh ji temple n kneel down praying prior to dropping money in the box. I heard someone yelling, hey hey hey, I looked back n saw the guy at the stall yelling at me to get out of temple coz I was in my shorts. I would want to know that where in any scriptures does it say that u can't enter a temple in shorts? He said that I will have to rent a dhoti / sulu/ to wrap around waist for $5. I have visited several temples and never experienced as such. These guys basically are bringing corruption in a worship place. You buy a thali consisting 1 banana, 1 coconut, one Kapoor, 1 stick incense for $5 n when u take it in, the swami ji would break the coconut in half n will place one half offering god n other half to u n the rest items he place it by god statue. They recycle these others items to be sold again at the stall. Please in the name of god, stop cruption in the temple. Donations are made by everyone entering the temple n so temple committee should better utlize the funds.
  • 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.
  • It is smaller than I expected. Entry fee is $5. You need to take off your shoes and cover your knees. Good place to take photos.
  • Highly becoming a commercial center rather than a worship place!
  • Really fell different . Great artitacture. I couldn't express in words that you can understand my felling.

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.
