Bringing movie celebrity posters to Sabarimala is objectionable: Kerala High Court.

The Travancore Devaswom Board, which oversees the Sabarimala temple, was recently ordered by the Kerala High Court to take all necessary measures to ensure that pilgrims worship at the temple grounds in a proper manner.

The decision was made by a divisional bench comprising Justices Anil K. Narendran and PG. Ajithkumar in response to reports of pilgrims playing with instruments at the Sabarimala Sannidhanam’s Sopanam while carrying movie celebrity posters.

A Sabarimala devotee complained via email to the High Court’s Registrar General about pilgrims bringing posters and enormous images of celebrities, politicians, etc. to the Sabarimala Sannidhanam, prompting the Court to take up the case suo moto.
