As reports of "violation of custom" at Sabarimala spread fanning out protests across the state, with the cadres of BJP, Yuva Morcha, RSS, and other organizations going on a rampage the police resorted to detaining the agitators as a preventive measure.
Two women made history Wednesday when they entered one of India's largest Hindu pilgrimage sites.
September's verdict was the latest progressive ruling from the court, with judges also overturning bans on gay sex and adultery previous year - posing a challenge to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's traditionalist Bharatiya Janata Party.
"Such cheap tactics are unbecoming of a state government", he said on Twitter.
Local media reported that the temple had been briefly closed for "purification" ritual after the intrusion was discovered.
Addressing the media, Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that this move has expressed satisfaction over the women's philosophy, and also said that this time there was no protest or demonstration as before.
The Kerala state government is run by left-wing parties and it has sought to allow women into the temple - a position that has drawn the criticism of both of India's main political parties, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Women activists believe that Bindu and Kanakadurga could enter the temple safely because there were no protestors at Sabarimala. Per the BBC, protesters have since attacked women who've attempted to enter the temple.

In 2014, astronomers found Thule using the Hubble Space Telescope and selected it for New Horizon's extended mission in 2015. Scientists define the Kuiper Belts as a huge zone of icy bodies and mysterious small objects orbiting beyond Neptune.
"If there is a divine intervention, definitely, the verdict will be in favour of us", Nair added.
On Tuesday, millions of women formed a human chain more than 375 miles long from Kasargod in the northern part of the state to Thiruvananthapuram, the southernmost city and the state capital, to support gender equality.
But in a surprise pre-dawn operation on Wednesday that was heralded by activists but that enraged conservative devotees, police enabled two women to penetrate the temple and then leave again undetected, officials confirmed. "By recognising it as a contempt of court and extremely casteist in nature, we demand that the government take necessary legal action against the chief", a statement by the collective read.
The restriction on woman at Sabarimala, situated on top of a 3,000-foot (915-metre) hill in a tiger reserve that takes hours to climb, reflects a belief - not exclusive to Hinduism - that menstruating women are impure.
"There are some temples which have their own traditions, where men can't go".
Traditionalists have also argued that the temple deity, Ayyappa, was celibate.
"There was an elaborate arrangement for them to come just after the temple was opened early morning", said the officer, who declined to be identified fearing reprisals from protesters.
Women are still barred from a handful of Hindu temples in India.
A day after millions of women stood together in the Indian state to form a almost 400-mile-long human chain to call for equality, two women made history-and sparked protests and a call for a state-wide shutdown-when they entered the Sabarimala temple in the state of Kerala in the early hours Wednesday.
