Women's entry to the temple was blocked for the second day by protesters today.
For centuries, the Sabarimala temple in Kerala has banned women and girls between the ages of 10 and 50 from entering the holy site.
But last month, the Supreme Court ruled the ban that infringed on the right to worship.
Entries for women is blocked by the "conservative devotees" despite the Supreme Court's ruling.
Clashes erupted between police and protesters when the temple opened the gates of the temple for the first time since the ban was lifted on Wednesday.
