Know the temples where males are not allowedNowadays, lots of debates are going on regarding the entry of women in the Sabarimala Temple in Kerala. In this connection, I would like to state that there are some temples in India where males are not allowed. The devout males don't demand entry in these temples and there are no debates on this issue. We must know about these temples.
1. Attukal Bhagavathy Temple in Kerala doesn't allow men inside the complex.
2. Chakkulathukavu Temple is also in Kerala. During 'Naari Puja', no male is allowed in the temple.
3. In the Lord Brahma Temple in Pushkar, males are not allowed.
4. In the Bhagati Maa Temple in Kanya Kumari, males are not allowed in the temple complex.
5. In the Mata Temple in Mujaffarpur, during a particular period, no male, even the male priest, is allowed in the temple.
6. In the Kamroop Kamakhya Temple in Assam, only women are allowed to enter its premises during their menstrual cycle. Only female priests or 'sanyasins' serve the temple where the menstrual cloth of Maa Sati (which is considered highly auspicious) is distributed to the devotees.
7. In addition, during the Santoshi Mata 'vrat', no male is allowed inside the Santoshi Mata Temples.
There are various reasons cited for these restrictions, and devout males follow these restrictions without any protest.
