Thiruvananthapuram: One of India’s greatest singers – K J Yesudas, a Christian by birth has been given permission to offer prayers at the Padmanabha Swamy temple. According to the temple custom, only believers of Hinduism are permitted entry at the temple, a major pilgrim centre and tourist attraction in the southern part of the country. The Padma Bhushan awardee has been a regular visitor to the Lord Ayyappa temple in Sabarimala and Mookambika temple but has been denied entry into the famous Sree Krishna temple at Guruvayur. Yesudas had sent a request letter and declaration of his faith in Hinduism through a special messenger two days ago. Though he did not mention any particular date in the letter, the messenger informed that the singer would like to visit the shrine on 'Vijayadasami' day, which falls on September 30. A meeting was conducted in the presence of head priest, chief priest and executive officer and other members of the committee of the temple where a unanimous decision was made to accept the legendary singer's request who has also rendered numerous devotional songs in praise of Hindu Gods.
