Singer Yesudas given permission to sing at Kerala's Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple
The committee of the Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple in Kerala have given permission to famous singer KJ Yesudas to offer prayer at the temple.
Only Hindus and those who declare faith in Hinduism are allowed to enter and offer prayers. Yesudas was given permission after he filed an undertaking that he has belief in Hindu faith and is ready to follow the temple traditions.
Yesudas is a Christian by birth, and has sang many Hindu devotional songs.
He was earlier denied entry into the famous Sree Krishna temple at Guruvayur and Kadampuzha Devi temple in Malappuram for being a non-Hindu.
Yesudas had sent a request letter and declaration of his faith in Hinduism through a special messenger two days ago.
He will visit the shrine on Vijayadasami, which falls on 30 September.
