¤ Society & Conduct

Indore, as the heartland of India, is a good place to practise all the dos and don’ts you should keep in mind before venturing into the country. Read up our guide in the section Religious and Social Etiquette under the India head.
Since Indore is a pretty conservative city, women should try not to roam around in shorts or mini skirts. (Save all those for metros like Bombay, Bangalore or Delhi.) Do remember that for all its calm and order, MP witnesses maximum crime against women in India, so it’s better to dress modestly.
The people of Madhya Pradesh are very particular about their womenfolk. Don’t stare at the women or approach them, even if it is to ask for directions, and never click pictures of them without prior permission. Move away from bathing or washing ghats if your presence is objected to.
