The Supreme Court has passed an Order last month permitting women of all age groups to visit the Sabarimala which did not go well and have caused unrest amongst the devotees since the judgment day in Kerela.

Several review petitions has been filed against the verdict. The Travancore Devaswom board has also planned to file a review petition against the Supreme court verdict.
Since all shops are closed including tea stalls, hotels the tourists who have visited Kanyakumari are facing a lot of inconvenience.
