Neat and respectful dress should be worn in all religious shrines. It is
not considered polite to visit religious monuments in shorts,
miniskirts or hot pants. Though shoes can be worn in temple compounds,
they should be removed before entering the chapel of the principal
Buddha image. Indeed, all Buddha images are regarded as sacred,
regardless of size, age or position, and should all be shown due
respect. Buddhist monks are not allowed to touch or be touched by a
woman, or accept anything from a woman's hand.
