Women activists enter Trimbakeshwar temple’s sanctum sanctorum
A day after they were allegedly manhandled while trying to enter the sanctum sanctorum of the famous Trimbakeshwar temple in “dress code”, four women activists on Thursday took ‘darshan’ of the deity amid police protection. The activists, led by Vanita Gutte of Pune-based Swarajya Mahila Sanghatana, offered prayers in the Lord Shiva temple’s ‘garbha griha’ (sanctum sactorum) around 6 am, accompanied by police personnel, Trimbakeshwar police station in-charge HP Kolhe said. “We are happy that we offered prayers inside the garbha griha. We arrived in the dress code – wearing wet cotton and silk saris – and were treated well by the trustees,” Gutte told reporters.
