What to wear when visiting a Hindu Temple?
||The basic dress code when visiting a Hindu Temple is: shoulders must be covered (easily done with a scarf or a shawl) and trousers or skirts must cover at least knees.
||Socks are fine, visitors can keep wearing them unless the temple floor is made of marble or any other slippery stone and it may be best to remove socks too.
||It is best to avoid anything too tight, too short and too revealing. Generally it is better to wear too much rather than too little when visiting a temple.
||Footwear should be removed outside the temple. Most temples will have a space designated for footwear to be left safely.
||For those who are not appropriately dressed, temples do provide shawls, cover-ups and wraps.
Smoking and consumption of alcohol are prohibited in the temple and temple grounds.
