Well, actually there is another important thing, which I belive visitors of Bali should keep in mind. In the Balinese religion (the Hindu-Dharma Agama Religion) it is believed that women are 'dirty' during menstruation and that daemons could possibly find their way into the temples through these women during their menstruation. Therefore women are asked not to enter any temple on Bali during their menstruation. I personally think that we should respect the cultural aspect of this rule and therefore it is my opinion that female travellers should not visit Balinese temples during menstruation.
