Opened in 1997, the Vishnu Shiva Mandir is a small slice of India in the suburbs of Canberra. This Hindu temple is an eye-catching, joyous-looking building, painted with bright colours and decorated with ornamental statuettes of gods and goddesses nestled amongst the domes. All visitors are welcome at the Mandir, but should remove their shoes, wash face and hands, and sprinkle water on their heads before entering. Inside, there is a large, carpeted area for worshiping before the shrine. There is also a library and a shop, which sells books, cassettes and worship items.
