Guidelines for Respectful Practices During Visits

When visiting the places of worship we learn to be mindful of others customs and beliefs.  We are being invited and welcomed into somebodies’s sacred space and as such we like to follow some guidelines and behave in a manner that respects that faith's customs and culture.  Some of the respectful practices we observe include:

  • All are requested to remove their shoes before entering the Hindu Temple, Sikh Gurdwara, Buddhist Temple and Islamic Mosque. 
  • Women entering the Mosque are asked to cover their heads and wear clothing which covers arms to wrists and legs to ankles, and all are asked to cover their heads in the Gurdwara (covering provided). 
  • Visitors should have no tobacco on them when entering the Gurdwara.
  • No outside food can be brought and consumed within the Shiva Vishnu grounds.
