Yesudas seeks permission to pray at Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple K.J. Yesudas. Onmanorama/File photo

Thiruvananthapuram: Legendary playback singer K.J. Yesudas has applied for a permission to pray at the famed Sree Padmanabha Swamy temple here on the occasion of Vijayadeshmi. Vijayadeshmi falls on September 30 this year.

The letter from Yesudas, who was born to a Roman-Catholic family, was sent through a special messenger to the temple authorities. A final decision will be taken by the temple committee.

According to the temple, anyone who believes in Hinduism are given permission to pray.

Yesudas said, that despite singing numerous songs on Lord Guruvayoorapan, he is yet to see the deity at the famed Sree Krishna Temple, Guruvayoor in Thrissur district, as the temple also bars non-Hindus from entering.

Yesudas in his signing career that has entered its 56th year, has recorded more than 1 lakh songs in 14 languages. He was awarded the Padma Shri in 1975, Padma Bhushan in 2002 and the Padma Vibhushan in 2017.
