Prohibition on leather goods in many Himalayan temples

Since many plucky travelers say their prayers in the temple before starting and after completing the Himalayan adventure, they should know that leather goods are banned in many Himalayan temples. For instance, you cannot carry leather items inside the Bhuvenshveri Temple in Kullu District, Himachal Pradesh. It is thus better to read instructions on the wall near the gate of the temple before entering the building.
