temple at Sabarimala will remain temporarily inaccessible to pilgrims following
flooding of the Pampa Triveni Bridge. Moreover the bridge was submerged
due to water gushing from the opening of two dams as a result of heavy downpour

instructed not to visit the temple as the river was flowing in full spate in
the region. Presently the district administration was monitoring the situation
and had restrained devotees at Erimeli and Pathanamthitta.
