Colombo: Sri Lankan government has announced plans to introduce a dress code for places of cultural and religious interests.

A special committee had been appointed to look into the matter and the dress code would be implemented from next year, Minister of Culture and Aesthetic Affairs T B Ekanayake said.

The dress code procedure would be implemented particularly for those who are visiting the sites of the Cultural Ministry and the ancient Cultural Triangle area in the country.

"Those who visit sites of the Cultural Ministry and the Cultural Triangle must maintain their discipline and as devotees, they must be dressed appropriately," the minister was quoted as saying by the government website.

"We hope to inform visitors of this decision and plans are afoot to implement a programme in this regard," he said.
