India Trip Day 5 / Jagdish Temple in Udaipur

さくっとお買い物をした後、ウダイプールの代表的なお寺「Jagdish Temple」に行きました。Jagdish Temple はヒンズー教のお寺で1651年に建てられたお寺だそうです。

After buying the bag I mentioned, we visited the “Jagdish Temple”, which is the most popular temple to visit in Udaipur.  It was built in 1651 and is a Hindu temple.

お寺に上がる階段の下で靴を脱がなくてはならず、わたしと夫は靴下を持って行って履いていたものと履き替えたのですが、屋根もないところから靴を脱ぐので当然靴下は真っ白で埃だらけ。そんなに神聖なところの割にはお掃除を頻繁にしているわけでもなさそう。靴下を通して足の裏まで汚れるくらいでした。その汚くなった靴下を持ち歩くのもあまり良い気分ではなくて、1足古い靴下は捨ててしまったくらい。ですので、あれば古くなって捨てたい靴下を持っていって捨てちゃうのが良いかも、と思いました。インドの方に限らず、アメリカやヨーロッパからいらしていたみなさんも、平気でそのまま脱いで歩いてそのまままた履いてましたけどね〜。いちいち足の裏を抗菌ワイプで拭いて靴下を履き替えるわたしたち、ちょっと珍しげに見られました(笑)。

You have to take your shoes off at the bottom of the steps before you climb up to the temple itself.  We took our spare pairs of socks so we could change them after visiting the temple; by the time we had finished the socks were completely white with dust.  If it’s so holy, I wonder why they don’t clean it often…  Anyway, they were so dirty that we didn’t feel very good about carrying them afterwards even though we did put them in a plastic bag that we can tie the handle.  This was often the case in many temples in India and we threw away a pair of old socks each.  I think it would be a good idea to take old ones with you that you are happy to throw away if you have some.  Having said that, people (not just Indian people but Americans and Europeans as well) were looking at us wiping our feet with anti-bacterial wipes and changing our socks with interest, and they just took their shoes off, walked around, then put them back on without a worry.  We were the minority.
