As per current practice, the temple doesn't allow entry to any woman who has attained puberty. Earlier this year in February, the apex court reserved an order while referring the case to a Constitution bench.
The court was hearing a batch of Public Interest Litigations (PILs) challenging the ban on women's entry into the sanctum sanctorum of the famed Sabarimala temple.
The temple, built in the 12th century, is located in Pathanamthitta district and is dedicated to Lord Ayappa.
Despite this, Sabarimala remains different from many traditional temples as it never observed caste distinctions, even as most temples in Kerala restricted entry to those belonging to the four varnas of Vedic Hinduism.
The larger Bench will choose whether the restriction on ladies to enter the sanctuary qualifies as a "essential religious practice" of the Hindu faith over which the summit court has no ward.
Meanwhile, women's rights activists are hoping for a positive judgment today.
