Shruthi Narayan | HENB | Thiruvananthapuram | Dec 8, 2016:: Kerala High Court rejects the new dress code at Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple that allowed women to wear churidar to the famed shrine. On Thursday, the designated bench delivered its judgement making it clear the chief priest’s word is final with regard to temple rites and rituals.

A woman advocate, Riya Raji, had challenged the customary dress code for women entering the temple.

The HC said that believers should adhere to the earlier dress code of wearing a sari while entering the temple. The HC said that believers should adhere to the earlier dress code of wearing a sari while entering the temple.
