Despite the Indian Supreme Court’s decision to lift restrictions on the entry of women at Sabarimala hill shrine in central Kerala, India, women are still barred from entering to the temple. Two women on Wednesday January 2, made history by entering the temple without any protection. Sabarimala is a Hindu temple in Kerala, India. Traditionally, women between age from 10 to 50 cannot enter into the temple of respect to the celibate nature of the deity in this temple. A Kerala high-court judgement legalized this practice and forbade women from entering the temple since 1991. In September 2018, a judgement of the Supreme Court of India ruled that all pilgrims regardless of gender, including women in the menstruating age group, should be allowed entrance to Sabarimala.
