What not to wear - Thai temples!

Thailand may be a very cosmopolitan city with people of all over the world thronging, and all kinds of crazy things happening. But, when it comes to the temples at the Grand Palace in Bangkok the scene is very different. Women cannot wear sleeveless tops or short pants/3-quarters. I guess the same rule applies with men as well. I saw many men and women wearing palazzos and sarongs respectively that they hired from outside the temples. Crazy, isn't it?

Oh is that so? That's interesting. Dont remember what the dress code was when I last visited some temple in Bangkok and also the jade buddha I think that's in the complex of the Grand Palace.
