IANS  |  Thiruvananthapuram 

The administration of the Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple here has informed the High that it had decided to let women wearing 'churidar' enter it.

Speaking to IANS, its Executive Officer K.N. Satish said the high had asked him to take the decision based on a petition.

"I informed the yesterday (on Monday) that women can enter the temple in churidar," he said.

The famed temple that shot into international fame since 2011 after it was found to have a treasure estimated to be in excess of one lakh crores, stacked in five vaults.

The customary dress code for women entering the temple is they should cover their dress using a dhoti or a saree and this was challenged by woman advocate Riya Raji.

A few years back, the Sree Krishna temple at Guruvayoor also allowed entry of churidar-wearing women.
