Photographer's Note

A bird rests atop the entranceway to the Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple in Nadi. This very colourful temple is the largest Hindu temple in the southern hemisphere.

One in three Fijians are Hindus. Hinduism in Fiji has a following primarily among the Indo-Fijians who are descendants of either indentured servants brought to Fiji by the British in 19th century, or descendants of immigrants who came to Fiji in the 1920s and 1930s. According to the Constitution of Fiji, citizens of the country are Indo-Fijians if they can trace their ancestry to the Indian subcontinent, but not necessarily India.

In a workshop you can see the detail of the Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple.
