Most important ,What to do and not to do in buddist temples and areas .
While you are visting these areas dress code is very important and the people will appreciate your modesty, you are going to want to make sure your shoulders are coverd at all times, instead of shorts try to wear longer pants, and last but not least make sure you take off hats and shoes before interning the area and leave them outside.
Pointing at things or people in temples is considered very rude.
No smoking, chewing gum, and turn off your cell phone, headphones, lower your voice, and avoid inppropriot conversation.
Right hand only:
When you receive or give something to a monk you will use your right hand only.
- Respect the Buddha Statues: Never touch, sit near, or climb on a Buddha statue or the raised platform. Get permission before taking photos and dont do this during worship. When exiting, back away from the Buddha before turning your back.
- Stand Up: If you happen to be sitting in the worship area when monks or nuns enter, stand to show respect;
- Body Language: If a monk is sitting, show respect by sitting before starting a conversation. Avoid sitting higher than a monk if you can help it. Never point your feet at any Buddhist while sitting.
