The annual Nallur Hindu Temple festival in Jaffna will take place on 15 August, organizers told Daily Mirror online. The historic festival draws devotees from around the island as well as overseas.

Meanwhile the festival organizers added that strict dress code guidelines will be in place for devotees entering the temple during the festival. Men will not be permitted to wear jeans into the Temple while women must wear a toe length dress or saree.

Thousands of Hindu devotees are expected to attend the festival, the second to be held following the end of the war in May last year. (Daily Mirror online)

    Just because god created you naked, why don't you roam around naked?

    I Love SL,

    I agree with you. Like you I do not judge people based on the dress. Practically, how we dress has an impact on us, and others who see us!

    Do the Gods really care how people are dressed. The Gods must have made a mistake when they created humans, to create them naked i.e without clothing. What is so wrong in a pair of jeans?

    It's very simple. Don't come, If you cannot follow the dress code. It has nothing to do with judging people by what they wear. It's about respecting the culture and tradition.

    Places of worship have their respective dress codes. People who cant respect it, don't need to be there.
