Sabarimala: As Jayalalithaa's health condition remains critical, Sabarimala temple has dedicated free meals to around 75,000 pilgrims on Monday to wish for the speedy recovery of Amma.
The four meals on Monday will be served free of cost to pilgrims.
The food is served to 2,000 devotees at the temple compound on a hill top and another 1,000 at a hall at the foothill in Pamba.
Jayalalithaa had suffered a cardiac arrest on Sunday evening.
She "continues to be very critical", Apollo Hospitals in Chennai said on Monday.
Pilgrims pay money to the temple board, whose officials oversee cooking and serving of food to pilgrims.
Situated in the mountains of the Western Ghats, the Sabarimala temple is four km uphill of Pamba in Pathanamthitta district, around 100 km from state capital Thiruvananthapuram. The temple is accessible only on foot from Pamba.
