Palakkad, 24th November 2022: A transgender couple has been denied permission to get married in a temple in Kerala. The couple is disappointed with the decision of the temple authorities. Both wanted to tie the knot in this temple, but the authorities refused.

Nilan Krishna and Advaika work in a local firm. They had proposed marriage in a temple located in the Palakkad district of Kerala. However, both got married in the marriage hall since the temple authorities denied permission. Nilan and Advaika’s colleague and the firm owner helped them during the wedding.

Temple officials said that this was the first time they had received a request for the wedding of a transgender couple, so they were a little apprehensive about people’s reactions. Eventually, the temple administration decided not to allow the couple to marry.
