Sri Siva Subramaniya Hindu Temple

The Southern Hemisphere’s largest Hindu temple is renowned for its monumental Dravidian architecture, ornate carvings, peaceful atmosphere and colourful festivals.

The Sri Siva Subramaniya Hindu Temple is a magnificent monument in Nadi city. Set on the edge of the Nadi River, the temple is the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. Admire the towering temple’s ornate carvings, depictions of Hindu gods and traditional Dravidian styling. Explore its tranquil interior and join the temple’s lively Hindu festivals.  

Historically, Indian migrants moved to Fiji seeking work on sugar plantations. Eight Indian craftsmen were commissioned to create the monumental structure. The complex features pyramid-shaped temples, individually adorned with elaborate carvings, step designs and statues of gods, kings and warriors.  

Sri Siva Subramaniya is dedicated to Lord Murugan, the god of seasonal rains. A sculpted depiction of the god stands over the central temple. There are further temples honouring Ganesh, the Hindu god with the head of an elephant, and Shiva, the supreme god. Brightly-coloured murals can also be seen within the complex, detailing scenes from the Hinduism.  

After wandering through the temples, pick a spot to rest or meditate and soak up some of the temple’s quiet tranquility. In the early evening, the temple offers a beautiful view of the sunset over Denarau Island.

Experience the more energetic side of the Hindu religion at one of the festivals or celebrations that occur throughout the year. Attend the monthly Karthingai Puja festival and see devotees giving offerings of fruit and flowers to the gods. There are also large annual festivals, such as Thaipusam in January and Panguni Uthiram Thiru-naal in April.  

Sri Siva Subramaniya Hindu Temple is located in downtown Nadi, at the southern end of the main street. Reach the complex easily by taxi from the airport or bus from many points around the island. If you wish to enter the temple, respect Hindu etiquette and only enter if you have not eaten meat on the day of your visit. Cover your shoulders and legs and try not to speak or take photographs. Visit the temple between sunrise and sunset daily, except for a few hours in the early afternoon. The complex is free to enter.
