Personally I was glad to get my shoes off and put my feet on the cool floor

And make sure you don't have to much skin exposed, I wore a bikini under a strapless dress and at the temple and the buddha I was given a blanket to put over my shoulders, I didn't mind, I should have known better - but it was toasty! so don't make that mistake!

Must be very modest and cover shoulders & knees.

Shoes off, socks ok, slipper sox ok too.

Some of the temples that I have visted, required you to wear the slipper socks.
