Subramaniya Swami Hindu Temple - Nadi, Fiji
Pictures and visitor information from a trip to the Sri Siva Subramaniya Swami Hindu Temple in Nadi Town, Fiji.
Siva Subramaniya Swami Temple was the second of the two must-see
attractions on the Nadi island of
Fiji that we wanted to visit besides the
Garden of the Sleeping Giant.
This ornate and colorful Hindu temple is located at the far southern end of Main Street in Nadi town.
We took a taxi from the Novotel Namaka Hill hotel to reach the temple and paid $15 FJD each way and another $15 FJD to let us explore the shops of Nadi town for an hour. The total cost of the excursion was about $23 USD.
After exiting the taxi, a man greeted us and briefly informed us of the temple rules. We had to take off our shoes and place them on a rack. Then we had to pay $3.50 FJD per person at the temple manager's window.
|The temple guide led us to the beginning of the path and said that we were asked to only walk around the temple in a clockwise direction. The sign with the list of rules mentioned that photography was not permitted inside the temple, so I figured that it was allowed while walking around the outside.|
|We were lucky enough to visit while an artist was painting (or re-painting) an intricate mural on the ceiling of the temple. Most of the paintings and wooden carvings are of various Hindu deities and the Hindu Lord Shiva's various forms.|
|The Sri Siva Subramaniya Swami is the largest Hindu temple in the Southern hemisphere. Some of the festivals or events that take place at the temple include Karthingai Puja (every month), Thai Pusam (every January), and Panguni Uthiram Thiru-Naal (every April). Visitors are welcome to the temple Monday through Sunday from 5:30 AM to 7:00 PM.|
