Dress code for Kashi Vishwanath temple announced

Varanasi, Jan 13 (IANS) The famous Kashi Vishwanath Temple in Varanasi has decided to implement a dress code for devotees before they enter the sanctum of the temple.

According to the new rule, male devotees will have to wear the Indian traditional ''dhoti-kurta'' while women will have to wear a sari to enter the premises and worship the deity.

The decision to this effect was taken by the Kashi Vidwat Parishad. Those wearing pants, shirts and jeans will only be able to worship the deity from a distance. They will not be allowed to enter the sanctum.

Though the dates for implementing this new rule have not been announced yet, sources have said that the step will be taken soon.
