Over the past few months I have been considering Hinduism/Buddhism as a way of life (to a degree, anyways). I have been interested in finding a temple in my area (of the USA), however have had some concern that I would show up and stick out like a sore thumb (unintentionally). So, does anyone attend one of these temples (in the USA particularly, or anywhere I suppose) and do they have "dress codes" (even if they are unsaid)? I would assume not based on my knowledge of the beliefs, but I just don't directly associate my style (heavy metal type) with these beliefs (particular in a fashion sense).
