    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.

    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!

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.
