This temple was lovely
Unfortunately we visited while they were in the middle of renovations however we still managed to have a guided tour and got to go inside to view the lovely paintings.

This Temple is one of its kind. So wonderfully and beautifully designed and made. clean and nice environment. Well organized and you dont need to rush as ample time is given to make a good tour and also pray.

I will surely recommend this place to everyone as it is part of culture as you will also learn and witness things in there.

Just a perfect piece.

We enjoyed our visit to the temple. The guide was very knowledgeable. The only down fall was that the Temple is under renovation so we couldn't see everything as lots of stuff was covered up.

The Sir Siva Subramaniya Temple is small, modest Hindu temple on the outskirts of Nadi offering a unique cultural experience for those in search of it.

My wife and I arrived to Nadi very early in the morning, and as such, we were looking for some time to kill before our hotel room was ready. The temple was recommended to us by our cab driver, so we made a short visit.

At seven o’clock in the morning the temple had very few visitors and only a handful of religious attendants wandering around the site. We were given sulus to cover our legs, and purchased bananas, coconuts, and flowers for offerings. My wife and I are not Hindu, so it was a little difficult to know what was and wasn’t proper temple etiquette. There was a sign at the entrance outlining a few "do’s and don’ts" however, so that certainly helped. In the end, we decided to be overly cautious to avoid making an offence, and, for example, limited the amount of photos we took.

Having been to some impressive Catholic churches and Jewish temples in North America and Europe, the Sir Siva Subramaniya Temple is very modest in comparison. We were able to spend roughly twenty to thirty minutes at the site before getting our fill. I imagine it will have deeper meaning to those following the Hindu faith, but for us it was a simple excursion and a quick stroll.

Overall, I wouldn’t recommend anyone go out of their way to visit the site, but if you’re in the area and have some time to kill it’s worth the cultural experience.

Interesting temple that was under renovations. Is a nice stop to look, but not a major attraction. Probably be nicer once the renovations done.
