Is it right to dress unconventionally in temples?Temples are places for worship. Men and women should make it a point to dress well, but mostly in traditional attire. Even a slight deviation can cause some amount of distraction at temples and is not needed or advised.
Women clad in jeans or sleeveless blouses with saris in temples tend to distract the attention of anyone who is quite young. I have seen this happen rarely, but it still happens. Either of these two dresses is fine of things like wedding receptions. But when worn in temples, there is some chance of inviting comments.
Should we not follow some ground rules here? Should not the elders educate very young people to follow some tradition? In some temples in Kerala, the dhoti is given on rent and men are allowed inside only in a dhoti. Even the pants are not okay. This is exactly what should happen. Wherever there is a dress code, it is fine to follow such dress codes.
