Out of respect to any religion in Rajasthan, India, once you enter  any temple one needs to take off your shoes. Some temples offer some cover for your feed, I had always a pair of old socks with me to wear.

Some temples offer a water pipe to wash one’s feet before they enter a temple. Yet they are devided between women and man.
