Foreign women to now wear saree at Kashi Vishwanath

A new rule is to be imposed on the foreign women visiting Kashi Vishwanath temple in Varanasi. They either told have to come 'properly dressed' or will be directed to nearby kiosks where they can wrap a saree before entering the temple. This is because the foreigners reach the premises in revealing clothes or short dresses that end above knee.

The temple administration has imposed a ban on the entry of foreign women wearing 'revealing' clothes and have introduced a dress code for them. Such foreigners will now have to wear a saree. For the purpose, the temple authorities have so far provided 25 sarees at the two entry points. Female police personnel have been deployed at these entry points to help such pilgrims in tying a saree.

Kashi Vishwanath Temple's additional chief executive officer P N Dwivedi said that the dress code has been imposed following the demands of the domestic pilgrims, particularly those hailing from South India, who were making objections to the 'revealing' dresses of foreigners.

"Devotees from South India had been making demand of saree for women and dhoti-kurta for men on the lines of the dress code in Tirupati Balaji temple. It looks awkward when foreign female tourists enter the temple wearing short dresses", Dwivedi said.

Dwivedi said they have no objections to tourists wearing jeans and trousers.

The temple administration, he said, was also planning to introduce dress code of dhoti for male devotees in future.
