Can anyone visit one or do you have to be Buddhist? Do they have regular times like churches to go or can you go anytime? Could my toddler go or would we be bothering something/someone? There is one very close to me and I would love to visit it, I just don't want to do anything wrong.Answer Question

Anyone can go to a Buddhist temple. There are not set times, most are open all day, but they often have times set aside for interested groups to learn & for supporters to come, they also might have some times when certain areas are being used & thus are not accessible. Your toddler will be perfectly welcome, Buddhist temples are not really "austere" & you don't have to observe in "hushed reverence" like we sometimes feel compelled to in the West. The only "rule" that you should be aware of ahead of time is that you take off your shoes before entering the sacred space, they will have a spot for you to take off your shoes & leave them, so make sure your socks are presentable :) Buddhist monks are extremely friendly & welcoming (in general), but they will also leave you alone to wander & observe.
