Trivandrum: Finally it happened. In a marathon meeting of the Administrative committee of the Padmanabhaswamy Temple here on Monday, that lasted for over two hours, it was decided to allow Malayalee’s very own K J Yesudas to enter the famous temple. The decision of the temple committee was announced by the Temple priest Thantri Tharanalloor Namboodiripad.

Yesudas’s application was as per norms and cleared administrative scrutiny by temple officials. The singer may visit the temple on Vijayadashami Day and recite Padmanabha Sathakam penned by Swati Thirunal. 

“There is no problem in permitting Yesudas in entering Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple now. Yesudas had made a requisition to the temple and the committee has accepted it as per rules prevailing at the temple,” said temple administrative committee chairperson and district judge K Haripal to waiting media persons.

“Being a celebrity, the permit was given based on his affidavit that states he believes in Hindu faith and is keen to have a darshan,” said temple executive officer V Ratheesan. Generally non-Hindus submit a written declaration stating that they believe in Hindu faith and are permitted entry, he added.

Yesudas was allowed to visit Sabarimala and he sang Harivarasanam for Lord Ayyapa there.
