"Visiting the Hindu Temple the..." Temples Tip by Divingmouse

Temples, Colombo: 23 reviews and 72 photos


Visiting the Hindu Temple the priest invited us into a small room and blessed us both with the ashes. Here is Bill with the dot of ashes between his eyes. Notice he was not allowed to wear his shirt into this particular room where the priest was chanting a prayer. Women are allowed also. I also got the dot and blessing but could keep my shirt on.

Address: Colombo, Srilanka at the Hindu Temple.
