To Royaldevon: Storing valuable things

  • Thank you Beverley,

    Difficult to answer your question correctly.
    Many people deposited only their shoes. Others gave a plastic bag of which I don't know what was in it.
    How safe were your belongings in the stand ??? I usually play it very safely.
    I knew from another traveller that there was a good budget hotel very close to the temple. So I booked a room in that hotel and before visiting the temple I brought my daypack (with my camera, smartphone, guidebook, etc.) to my room.

    India seemed a pretty safe country but it is best not to take unnecessary risks.
    Smaller hotels seem to be the safest places anywhere in the world to keep valuable things in a locked baggage.
    The few people I ever met who were robbed in their hotel room stayed in a very large hotel.
    Maybe so far I've always been very lucky ...

    Best regards,
    Paul
