Every religion has a different set of rules and practices and that applies to their homes and places of worship. It is important to be mindful and respect these for when you visit, especially if you’re an expat that generally practices a different spiritual belief.
Don’t touch or sit near Buddha statues or any raised platform. Taking photographs is generally allowed, but it is best to ask for permission first. It is considered polite and respectful to be covered so wear modest clothing. Wear long trousers rather than shorts or miniskirts and avoid sleeveless shirts. Turn off mobile phones and lower your voice during religious services.
