Sabarimala temple doors to shut today

Sabarimala, temple

Thiruvananathpuram : The doors of the revered Ayyappa temple in Sabarimala will close on Monday, five days after the monthly pooja comes to an end.

A day before the doors closed, four women were turned back by the agitators who have refused to allow any woman of menstruating age to enter the shrine. The temple will close at 10 pm today.

However, the police also asked the media in Sannidhanam and Pamba to vacate the area because they had received information about a targeted attack being planned on the media contingent.

Ever since the temple opened after the Supreme Court order, 10 women have been forced to return as the protesters denied their entry to the shrine and heckled at them.
