What are the secrets in Indian temples

Secret of the treasures of Padmanambhaswamy in India

Everyone knows that ancient Indian families generously donated jewels to the churches, and there was a custom of hiding the treasury in temples during wars and civil wars.

The history of the Padmanabhaswamy Temple of immeasurable wealth has long been shrouded in mystery. Researchers from around the world are wondering what secret is hidden behind the final door in the Padmanabhaswamy Temple (the Hindu temple of Vishnu) in the city of Trivandrum, India.

The Supreme Court of India is now trying to determine the fate of the immense wealth that lies in the cellars of the Vishnu Temple in the city of Thiruvananthapuram. It's about treasures, the value of which, according to the most conservative estimates, is $ 22 billion.

On the one hand, they are claimed by the descendants of the Rajas, who have saved gold and precious stones for centuries.

On the other hand from the believing Hindus and the union of the temple servants. In the meantime, the price of the edition can go up significantly as not all temple vaults are open and the total value of the treasure there is likely to be equal to a trillion dollars.

In 2011, a special government commission in the presence of the Commander-in-Chief opened up six secret storage locations in the inner sanctuary, two of which were sealed about 130 years ago.

As a result, an unprecedented treasure was discovered: jewelry with diamonds, gold implements, weapons, gold idols, diamond necklaces, a gold chain length of 5.5 meters, a 36 kilogram gold "canvas", diamond necklaces with an approximate weight of about 500 kg, bags full of gold coins from different countries, ceremonial costumes embroidered with gold, decorated with rubies and emeralds, and a statue of Lord Vishnu made of pure gold at a height of 1.2 meters.

One of the cells remained closed, and now the whole world is wondering what lies behind the mysterious door.
Many believe that the contents of what is hidden within the mysterious chamber go far beyond material wealth and that it is very risky and dangerous to open it.

The steel door with the image of two cobras (rumor has it to protect the entrance to the cell) is a mystery in itself. It has no fasteners, latches, latches, screws or other clamps. These are two ordinary pieces of steel that have been hermetically sealed with the "Naga Bandham", sound waves from the secret song.

The door to such a vault can only be opened by a very powerful "sadhu" who is familiar with the knowledge of the release of the "Naga Bandham" and who chants the sacred "Garuda Manta".

Hindu priests say that there is currently no person who can open this door by singing this song.

It is believed that when an "ordinary person" tries to open a mysterious camera using artificial technology rather than a sacred song, irreparable things happen. Disasters and other apocalyptic scenarios can occur not only in the temple premises but also across India and even around the world.

Today the Hindu temple of Padmanabhaswamy in the southern Indian state of Kerala is one of the most protected places on the planet. To protect it, most state police officers have been attracted, the entire perimeter of the shrine is equipped with numerous security cameras, daily security is provided by about 200 armed guards who have heavily armed in their arsenal.

Padmanabhaswamy is just one of the six hundred thousand Hindu temples in the country. The treasures in them are not counted; this three thousand tons of gold, which Jutli mentioned, is only the first estimate, for there are still precious stones and silver.

And the treasures in India are not only kept in the temples: a real gold rush broke out in the state of Rajasthan after the local farmers found a thousand gold coins from the time of the Gupt Empire in a neglected quarry. All over India there are legends of countless treasures and riches that lie beneath the ground or hidden in rivers and lakes, and the findings confirm these rumors again and again.

Everyone knows that ancient Indian families generously donated jewels to the churches, and there was a custom of hiding the treasury in temples during wars and civil wars. But the sacred structures of India have always been inviolable, and not all Indians rushed to look for treasures. The believers are appalled by the actions of the "blasphemers" and claim that the gods will not forgive the invasion of their homes.

At the same time, the intrigue around the Padmanabhaswamy Temple unfolds. But the curses threatening the Vishnu priests stop the top Kerala officials from taking decisive action.

Less than a week after the treasure was opened, 70-year-old Sundar Rajan suddenly died of a fever, according to the official version. A physically strong man who had never complained about his health died suddenly, and the autopsy never established the exact cause of his death. Of course, many did not believe the reports in the press and viewed his death as a punishment for Vishnu for insomnia.

The descendant of the rulers of Travancor will not surrender either. He said that he would fight for the inviolability of the final hiding place with the treasures of the Padmanabhaswamy Temple. This hiding place was not opened at the same time as the other five rooms because it is sealed with a special "sign of the serpent" that protects the peace of Vishnu. And it's not even about the treasures that are there.

There is a legend that in the room sealed with the "sign of a serpent" there is a kind of inviolable reserve of the temple of Vishnu. It is forbidden to touch gold and jewelry that are there.

Only in the extreme case, when the fate of the principality and the people living there is put on the map, after a special ceremony, the priests will be able to open the door to the treasury, which is guarded by a huge three-headed cobra with ruby ​​eyes. Those who attempt to break into the dungeon will face impending death.

The Supreme Court has ruled that the final sealed storage location will not be opened until the local authorities guarantee sanctity and safety to the temple and the treasures are properly assessed and protected, documented, filmed, and professionally attributed. However, as the judges have established, this has not yet been done for the wealth already found.

Meanwhile, the chief judges deal with ancient spells, the historians and the public argue who now owns the treasure and what to do with it. Pro-Rector of the University, Mahatma Gandhi in Kerala Rajan Gurukkal is certain that regardless of whether this treasure belonged to the princes or the temple, it is a unique archaeological treasure that is several hundred years old.

And some archaeological object belongs to the nation. Indeed, above all, the temple treasure is of great value as a source of information about the society of medieval India, and not just because the treasures, especially such large ones, may contain coins and jewels that are accumulated at fairly large time intervals.

Gurukkal is certain that the state must take care of the safety of the historical and cultural objects found and calls for the treasure to be sent to the National Museum.

But the ex-chief of the Archaeological Research Council, Narayanan, told the press that, on the contrary, the authorities should not interfere, because the fate of the treasure should be decided by the Temple Council. Otherwise it will be an attempt at private property.

Representatives of Indian intellectuals, including the former Supreme Court Judge Krishna Ayer, propose using wealth for the good of society: 450 million people in the country live below the poverty line.

Time will tell whether the treasure will find a punishment or a blessing for one of the poorest Indian states.

Everyone knows that ancient Indian families generously donated jewels to the churches, and there was a custom of hiding the treasury in temples during wars and civil wars. The history of the Padmanabhaswamy Temple of immeasurable wealth has long been shrouded in mystery.
