The temple’s rule is any women within the age group between 10-50are not allowed inside the shrine.

Jayamala, according to her reported confession, made the trip to the shrine in 1987 with her husband to fulfill a vow. There was heavy rush and she was pushed into the sanctum sanctorum where she touched the idol of Lord Ayyappa with utmost devotion as she did not know that it was a strictly prohibited practice.
