The Supreme Court allowed the entry of women in the Swami Ayappa Temple at Shabarimala and ever since then a lot of protests have erupted in Kerala against the decision. One of the points that is raised by the devotees is that it would lead to a sort of desecration of the temple because we are breaking the ancient rules.
There is already a question regarding why women are not allowed in Shabarimala but mine is different. I want to know do any scriptures mention specifically that the entry of a woman who is capable of having periods leads to the desecration of a temple? It may not be specific to Shabarimala could be any other temple too but I want to know if any such statements barring the entry of women exist in our scriptures.
