gods. They would make local laws and keep order in their religion.
Only priests were allowed to enter the sacred area of the temple
and approach statues representing the gods. the priest's roll was
to care for needs of the gods. They would wash of the statue, give
it clothing and jewels, and also place offerings of food and drink by
it. When leaving the priests would sweep away their footprints and
seal the sacred area. the priests would not teach religion instead
