BAPS Hindu Temple in Abu Dhabi, which was inaugurated by Indian PM Narendra Modi, opens to public as authorities issue dress code and other guidelines for visitors

The  BAPS Hindu temple in Abu Dhabi, which was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi last month, is now open to the public and authorities have introduced a guideline for visitors to follow while visiting the religious establishment.

The guidelines include the kind of clothes people are allowed to wear while visiting the temple among others.

As per the guidelines, pets are not allowed inside the temple premises.

Drones have also been strictly prohibited within the temple compound.

Visitors are also not allowed to outside food and drinks within the temple complex.

The guideline said: "Please dress in line with the following guidelines: Cover the area of the body between the neck, the Elbow, and the ankles. Caps, t-shirts, and other clothing articles with offensive designs are not allowed. Do not wear translucent or tight-fitting clothing. Avoid clothing articles and accessories that make distracting noises or reflections."

Temple authorities said those visitors who would be found not following the guidelines or are 'deemed inappropriate' by the staff may be denied entry.

Spread over 27 acres and built at a cost of over Rs. 700 crore, the BAPS Hindu temple is also seen as a mark of the deepening ties between India and the United Arab Emirates.

Built by the Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS), the temple is located in Abu Mreikhah, near Al Rahba.

Modi inaugurated the temple

Indian PM Narendra Modi inaugurated the temple on February 14.

After inaugurating the temple, PM Modi said in Hindi, "A golden chapter in human history has been written in UAE today. A grand and holy temple has been inaugurated in Abu Dhabi today. Years of hard work have gone into this temple and a long-cherished dream has come true. Bhagwan Swaminarayan's blessings are also with this temple.”
