This peaceful Hindu temple is one of the few places outside India where you can see traditional Dravidian architecture.
At the base of Main St, away from Nadi’s boisterous main drag, the temple is painted in colours bright enough to make your eyes ache and looks fantastic against cloudless, blue skies. The wooden carvings of Hindu deities travelled all the way from India, as did the artists who dressed the temple in its colourful coat and impressive ceiling frescos. New murals are still being commissioned and it’s quite possible that you’ll see resident artist ST Santosh lying down, Michelangelo-style, on scaffolding as he paints the temple’s ceilings.
