The Indian Supreme Court has observed that women have the constitutional right to enter Sabarimala temple in Kerala and pray like men without being discriminated against.

The Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra comprises Justice RF Nariman, Justice Chandrachuad, Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice Indu Malhotra.

Court expressed the view that even if there was no law, the women cannot be discriminated against with regard to offering prayer in a temple. Women have the constitutional right to enter Sabarimala temple in Kerala and pray like men without being discriminated against.
