At temples: When you visit a cultural sensitive area, you show respect by covering your shoulders, wearing long pants to the knees and need some better footwear (though usually people enter the temple barefoot). T-shirt or blouse is acceptable. You’ll not be admitted if you are wearing tank tops, short shorts or revealing clothes. Also do not wear mini skirts, tops with low neck lines, or bare shoulders. In other words, simply dress reasonably and you will have no problems.
