“You may find that a Mosque may not be happy if a non-Muslim walks in”

I’m not aware of any mosques that prohibit non-Muslims, outside of the holy
cities (Mecca/Medina), though you would need to dress appropriately and act

Jehovas’ Witnesses also welcome new people (aka potential converts).

Mormon temples have places that are off-limits, however - even to ordinary

There are some Hindu temples that prohibit women, and many places of
worship expect men and women to be segregated.

So it’s not an access tag.
