A 46-year-old Sri Lankan woman has become the third woman to enter Sabarimala temple and offer prayers. 

The Lankan woman entered the temple a day after Bindu and Kanakadurga, the two women in their 40s, created history by defying threats from saffron organisations and offered prayers at Sabarimala temple. 

The duo did not face any trouble from the devotees during the course of their journey towards the temple.

According to ANI, the Lankan woman had reportedly informed Police that she had reached menopause and presented a medical certificate.

''I went up to the holy steps, but I was not allowed to go further. I had a medical certificate also,'' she reportedly said.
