List of Treasure Found in Six Hidden rooms in Padmnabhaswamy temple estimated to be more than Rs.1 Lakh Crore

Currently media has reported that ancient Shri Padmnabhaswamy temple in Thiruvananthapuram is the richest in the world.
Treasure estimated at over Rs. 1 lakh Crore has been found in five of the six chambers of the 16th century temple.

Shri Padmnabhaswamy temple in Thiruvananthapuram houses a sleeping idol of Lord Vishnu.
Padmanabhaswamy, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, is the presiding deity at the temple.

January 31 Kerala High Court ordered that state should take over the trust and management of the temple after that the heir of erstwhile king of Travancore Raja Rama Varma filed a petition challenging this order.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday said that unearthing process of treasure trove inside Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Kerala should be filmed and photographed.

It’s said that after 150 Years on the orders of Supreme Court of India the vaults were opened.

The chambers were opened on the instructions of the Supreme Court after a city lawyer alleged poor security and mismanagement by the trust that handles the temple.

As per law deity is the owner of this all treasure found in a temple.

Supreme Court has appointed a seven-member panel to generate an inventory of the temple's underground rooms, chambers leading to the discovery of a vast hidden collection of riches.
The panel is preparing an inventory list of all the valuables inside six different chambers.

The members include 2 former Kerala High Court Judges; representatives of government and the royal family trust which runs the temple are also present.

First panel will make an inventory, it will be given to Supreme Court of India and then the real value of each item will be finalized and we will come to know exact figure.

It’s good that Supreme Court of India is monitoring the treasure; otherwise we do not trust anyone.

Supreme Court Bench of justice R V Raveendran and justice A K Patnaik asked the Archaeological Survey of India [ASI] to suggest the steps that can be taken to protect the treasure and also where it can be safely kept.

Hope the government does not being greedy... The artifacts should be displayed in a museum and the money should be used for the upliftment of the poor.

In the British balance sheet donation to charity comes first. In the US balance sheet the expenses towards oil and fuel.
In India we follow the British system. The money got as a charity should be used in charity only. In charity purposes like school, social welfare etc. The money should not be allowed to go lower in the balance sheet.
