Guidelines for Entry to Iraivan Temple

Information For Guests

Kindly don’t invite more people to join you who are not included in your reservation. Sit together as a family. When in the temple don’t walk up the 5 granite steps toward the main shrine.

Dress Code

Monastery dress code is modest. Guests are encouraged to dress in traditional Hindu clothing when visiting. Alternatively, elegant clothing is permitted. No shorts, short dresses, tight-fitting yoga pants, t-shirts or tank tops. Polo shirts and long shorts that cover the knees are okay.

Some Other Important Guidelines

Video and photography of the inside of Iraivan Temple is not permitted. All other areas may be photographed. We ask visitors to bring an umbrella as it rains often here. It is always prudent, even in paradise, not to leave valuables in your car. Please note, we do not provide meals at the monastery. You are welcome to use our local Kauai Dining Guide to help plan your meals while on pilgrimage.
