Dress code for temples!

on Apr 03, 2013 , 01:50 pm
Does a person's clothes can be a barometer for judging their religious beliefs? I don't think so.

Just read that a temple in Saurashtra has imposed a dress code wherein those wearing half pants, gowns and night dresses wouldn't be allowed to enter in the temple. The temple officials say this step is to maintain the Indian culture in the temple area.

Temples in Bali Indonesia too have a dress code. You need to be dressed in their 'formal' sarongs, wrapped around your legs and wear a temple scarf around your waist. These items are usually rented out at most temple entrances.

Is it really fair to restrict people on the basis of the what they are wearing. I don't think so.

I don't think there should be any restriction of dress code while visiting a temple.People's clothes can't be the parameter of your believe in god.

Clothes should be decent, if you put shorts people will look at you and not the God...

Just as you have formal attair for various occasions - office, party, official engagements etc, there should not be any problem for people to accept a dress code while visiting places of religion.

Logically, temple administration has done good job. At-least for lill time but people will not forget there own culture even its good to create a healthy & peaceful environment. I dnt know why people take it personally.

I think its right to implement a dress code. These places are sacred places and one has to be dressed appropriately as a mark of respect
