I know it is hard to believe for many; however, there are still places out there that many races are not allowed in. It is even more difficult to believe that you can be from that country and still be banned from going into certain areas because it is for foreigners or men only. Here I will give you a list of places in India where Indians are not welcomed whether it is as a whole or of sex.
Many of the reasons behind it might shock you.
#1. Free Kasol Café :
Kasol is a party place in India. Free Kasol Café is owned by an Israeli that encourages foreigners and Indians are not so welcomed upon entry.
This was a Japanese based hotel. However, in recent times the government shut it down based on discrimination.
#3. Highlands Lodge :
Located in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, this lodge only welcomes foreigners. If you are Indian, you may stay so long as you have a foreigner’s passport.
#4. Foreign Beaches Only :
Yes, there is such a thing as foreign only beaches. The two most common in India are Pondicherry Beach and Goa beach.
#5. Sakura Ryokan Restaurant :
Japanese owned, this restaurant sits back in a low-profile hotel, and actually only Japanese are welcomed in this establishment.
#6. Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu :
There is a residential area in Tirunelveli that only Russians are allowed in and out. It is because there is a nuclear plant based there.
#7. Haji Ali Dargah, Mumbai :
This is where the tomb of the 15th century Sufi saint, Haji Ali, is at. It is considered a grievous sin per Islam for a woman to come close to the grave.
#8. Lord Ayyappa Temple, Sabarimala:
Here only the woman between the ages of 10 and 50 are not allowed. The reason behind this is because woman during their menstruation period is not supposed to enter places of worship.
#9. PatbausiSatra, Assam:
The reason why women are banned from this beautiful place is also because of the menstrual cycle.
Lord Kartikeya Temple, Pushkar:
Here women are banned entirely because it is believed that instead of the Lord blessing them, women are cursed.
