Logic behind Faith?



Last week I had been to Aurangabad.Amongst the many places to visit there,one place I visited was the Grishneshwar Temple,which is one of the 12 Jyotirlings of Lord Shiva.

The temple, like all others has a legend attached to it as well.But what struck me as different was one of the customs or acts that had to be done at the temple.Before entering the temple,all the males should remove their upper body clothes.Now,its not that I am someone who has been to all the temples in India ,but I have been to quite a lot and nowhere have I seen such a custom been followed.Of course,there are places where we need to cover our head or not carry any leather articles,but what could be the logic behind this beats me.

Anyone know anything about it?Kindly enlighten me......
