No shoes, or socks are allowed when walking within the temple grounds. Usually there will be a sign to tell you where to remove your shoes and socks. For convenience, I will recommend you to wear slippers, or thongs, or flip-flops. It will be easy to remove and wear. Dun worry of looking out of place, cos the people there also wear slippers!
