- Sannidhanam: Even as a couple of young women try to enter Sabarimala disregarding widespread protests, the additional priests (parikarmis) have stopped pujas at the shrine and are protesting at the base of the Pathinettam Padi. They were directed earlier by the Pandalam palace to stop the puja at the shrine, close the temple and hand over the keys if young women cross Pathinettam Padi. The additional priests are protesting so as to prevent young women from entering the temple. They are supported by several devotees. If the customs are violated, parihara kriya (atonement rituals) would be held, said temple Thanthri.
