Treasure of Kerala



The Sreepadmanabhaswami Temple in Kerala hid treasure worth crores of rupees for centuries.  This was revealed when the treasure cellars were opened under the order of Supreme Court.  The images of these treasures are yet to be published.  Only a few officers were allowed to enter other than the members of the royal family of Travancore.  These chests contained lots of golden chains, ornaments, things used for rituals which were made out of gold, royal crowns etc.

The Court further ordered those who are involved in the stock taking process, to abstain from declaring the value or disclosing the details to the press and other media.

Anyway, this is amazing.....
