Kerala gears up to welcome women pilgrims

Both the Kerala government and the Travancore Devaswom Board will make arrangements to welcome women pilgrims to Sabarimala.

It was decided that special arrangements would be made at the Nilackal base camp and the trekking route to the temple. Special toilets and bathing ghats would be provided for women. A digital queue system similar to the one in Tirupathi would be introduced to regulate the crowd. Police women and volunteers would be posted to help the women pilgrims. Lights on the trekking path and number of CCTV cameras would be increased.
