Sabarimala The famous Sabarimala temple in Kerala has seen a huge increase in the number of devotees, its revenue touching a peak figure of Rs 100 crore on the 27th day of the temple’s opening in this session. The figure was Rs 60 crore last year. This information was given by the temple officials. This time devotees have been visiting the Sabarimala temple for the last two months. Revenue is derived from the sale and offering of ‘Appam’ or ‘Aravan (Payasam)’ as offerings, which the devotees have purchased through cash or coin.
The figure was Rs 60 crore last year. This information was given by the temple officials.
At the same time last year, the Supreme Court in its order opened the temple to women of all age groups. On September 28 last year, women of all age groups were allowed to enter the temple by the Supreme Court. There were mass demonstrations by right-wing organizations and BJP workers after the state’s Left Front government pledged to comply with it. Bhumata Brigade leader Trupti Desai had to return to Kochi once again this year due to people protesting against the entry of women in the age group of 10-50. The police refused to give him security citing security reasons.
