Sydney Temple Guide
Sydney does not sound like the place where there would be Hindu or Buddhist temples. But nothing can be far from truth. There are quite a few temples in Sydney catering to both faiths. The city proves that spirituality or devotion towards God cannot be hindered by geographical differences. Whether you are a devout follower or simply want to see the grandeur of the shrines, the temples will welcome you with open hands.
1. Sydney Murugan Temple
Sydney Murugan Temple is one of the most important Hindu temples in Sydney, Australia. The temple is dedicated to Lord Murugan, the God of War form of Shiva and Parvati’s son Kartikeya who is worshipped largely in South India. This Hindu temple in Paramatta area has typical South Indian architecture, complete with a short Gopuram or gateway.
2. Sydney Shakti Temple
Located on the famous Old Windsor Road, Shakti Temple of Sydney has a bright golden idol of Shakti – the feminine goddess mother of the cosmos, who is also the consort of Shiva. The temple is built on the beliefs of Karma and Dharma, which preaches that one would get back what they give away in life, be it good or bad deeds.
3. Sri Venkateshwara Temple
The beautiful neighbourhood of Helensburgh houses the stark white Venkateshwara Temple. Surrounded by the natural beauty of this part of the city, the beautifully carved Shikhara or the spire of the temple with stucco figures rise above it all. Like the Murugan Temple, this too resembles any typical South Indian temple in look. The temple is dedicated to Lord Balaji, a manifestation of Lord Vishnu.
4. Mukti Gupteshwar Temple
Mukti Gupteshwar Temple is a shrine as well as a non-profit institution working towards the betterment of the local society. The idol of Shiva is a colossal one, with the Lord resting peacefully in his meditating pose, hands outstretched on his folded knees and eyes closed. The statue in this Shiva temple in Sydney is serene and peaceful, and towering over the Minto area with all the spirituality in the world.
5. Mingyue Lay Buddhist Temple
Temple sightseeing is not complete without a visit to the famous Mingyue Lay Buddhist Temple in Sydney. It is one of the oldest and largest Chinese Buddhist temples not only in Sydney but in the entire southern hemisphere. Established in 1982, the shrine follows the Mahayana school of Buddhism. There is a cafeteria inside, where everyone stops for quick refreshments during their visit. The gate of Buddhist Temple in Sydney is as grand as you can imagine it, complete with vibrant colours and Chinese dialects on it.
6. Sydney Durga Temple
In the Regent Park area of Sydney, there is a shrine dedicated to the Mother Goddess of Hinduism, Devi Durga. Run by Sri Durgadevi Devasthanam, this place welcomes the Hindu residents of Sydney for everyday pujas. During Durga Puja in the month of October, this Hindu temple in Sydney gets quite a footfall. The shrine houses deities of Goddess Durga, Goddess Laxmi and Goddess Saraswati. So Diwali and Vasant Panchami is also celebrated here with fervour.
7. Swaminarayan Temple
Swaminarayan Temple in Rosehill region is a shrine dedicated to various earthly manifestations of Lord Vishnu and his consort Devi Laxmi. There are idols of Lord Rama and Sita, there is Krishna with his flute and Radha by her side, and there is Lord Vishnu and Goddess Laxmi themselves in the centre.

Trip to AustraliaIt was a great tour organised by Travel triangle. Everything gone very smooth without any trouble. Hotels in Sydney and Gold Coast were excellent, hotel in Melbourne was average. Itinerary provided was very informative and helpful. Arranged local transportations were very comfortable. In the end I would like to thank to Travel triangle and Fantabulous which was the tour travel agent for making my trip memorable. Great ocean trip was the best memory of the trip.
Trip to AustraliaWe are the widely traveled senior citizens chose to visit Australia and covered Melbourne, Gold-Coast, Cairns and Sydney. The services of Travel Triangle & Fantabulous are great in general and the interactions with Ishita & Narendar is really superb. Appreciate Ishita's patience and cool handling of demanding customers like me. Narendar is meticulous. But, Travel Triangle/Fantabulous need to go a long way and required to improve & innovate the "Flight-Booking-System and Method" without hurting or taxing both sides.
Trip to AustraliaHighly professional and top quality service. All executives were very helpful and dedicated to provide timely updates. Good Job!
Trip to Australiait was wonderful trip ... everything was well planned . thanks wanderbird holidays for this memorable holiday.
Trip to AustraliaI could customize my trip and also everything was as per plan and hassle free. i have only one suggestion- Please aware customer about the Visa deadlines when you yourself bear the cost. It costed me more and risk of not meeting deadline was faced just because of lack of communication on time. Also the victoria hotel in melbourne is good. But my experience with Novotel Rockford hotel in sydney was not good.
Trip to AustraliaI would like to thanks Travel Triangle and Memorable Vacations especially Krishna and Ashish for planning such a wonderful Australia trip. Almost everything was perfect ad as per our expectations. I would definitely recommend them.
Trip to New ZealandI booked my Australia & NZ (South Island) holiday with the travel agent Hub Holidays. It has been a great service by the travel agent. The agent really has an in-depth knowledge of the travel aspects for these countries. Both Amit and Prashanth guided me right from the initial booking stage of the holiday to the completion of our trip. They have been always available on the phone and watsapp for any issues encountered by me during the Holiday. It has been a great service and I look forward to revisit New Zealand, both north and south islands with the assistance from this travel agent. Sky diving in queenstown has been an amazing memory of my trip.

Trip to AustraliaHi Raunak/Tanushree Thanks for giving us the perfect honeymoon we could hope for. The whole trip was hassle free and perfectly planned. Not once we had to go through any kind of trouble for anything. Both of them were thoroughly connected to us throughout the trip keeping tabs. We wish them all the luck for future endeavours and will surely travel with them in the future. Prateek and Ria
Trip to AustraliaWe booked the flight tickets from HubHolidays. Yeeshu and Prashant handled our booking pretty well. Yeeshu was extremely proactive in checking flight tickets for us. For about a week or so he kept checking tickets until we got the best one. He kept the tickets on hold for us when he found appropriate and low fare flight for us and we did the bookings in no time. I couldn't have got that rates by myself. This included the travel insurance and VISA assistance as well. VISA assistance (Pawan and Team) also amazingly handled and we had no problem whatsoever. The sightseeing options provided were also good and at comparable rates but we wanted to see them at our leisure at the destination itself. In all, it was a great experience for us and would recommend to check them out while planning a trip. Shout out to Yeeshu again for handling our booking well. :)
