i c.. so that makes rs36500 for a whole year per person. judgin by the value of the treasure, it can roughly feed 2millon person for a year.. Thats a f*ckin lot. But wut will happen to them after the 2 years???
Guess u know the sayin: "Give a fish to a hungry man today, and he will ask you again tomorow. Teach him how to fish, and you will help him better" So i guess instead of using all this to feed the poors and all, they shoud try building infracstructur that will help them earn for themselves. Where they wont be asked for degrees and qualification to earn the minimal and take care of themselves alone :)

Ende Swandham naadu.. I guess there's a reason why it's called God's own country indeed! He could buy it with all that gold in the temple. :lol:


We have Tirupati beat by a looooooooong way :D


Anyway, people really should stop donating so much to temples to 'please the Gods' and instead give to charities that actually help the poor or save animals or help people get an education...stuff like that. :|

This wealth of course was donated / received by rulers of the state through several generations and stored in the temples to keep it away from the British (Brits got trolled :bigyellowgrin: \m/ ). The best thing that could happen is if this wealth (as well as that in every temple and religious institution for tasks like 'gold plating a pillar or throne') were used for the welfare of the downtrodden or to improve public facilities, but that pipe dream will never come to fruition with our cutthroat politicians who'll find a way to spirit away a little gold here, a few diamonds there until a few hundred crores disappear without trace. So considering that it's more practical for the gold to remain locked up in the Padmanabhaswami Kshetram.
If God comes up with a contest, win it and i will spare the world in 2012, we will let Solitaire take part in it, rest assured we are safe.

Its a very important temple here, and the wealth is an accumulation of donations from several generations of rulers. It belongs to the temple and should stay that way.


Shall we leave today?? :bigyellowgrin:

It ain't that far from Cochin :cheers:

you guys are getting it wrong, there is no chance that the politicians can get even an ounce of gold from the treasure. The search was conducted on the instructions of the High court in a matter between one of the temple authority/ monk. so the gold and the treasure would be pretty safe for the moment. Apart from the small pick pocketing by the officials and 'pandus' :P , but even those small pick pocketing would be worth lakhs judging the size of the treasure :lol:

The jewels should not be just locked away. I feel some of these high valued articles, atleast 30% of the articles can be let off in auction and the money should be strictly spent for the benefit of the country. So, i say bring on LOKPAL immediately :bash:


I agree with this. Retain 50% at the temple, for now, auction 50% over the next few years and remove the fiscal deficit, help out the poor and bring in some powerful changes for the country. Im kind of split on the view whether it should remain with the temple or be used to for the country(which is why Ive used a conservative estimate of 50%). While hereditary ownership is something I agree with, I believe the kind of treasure and money involved, it must be used for a bigger and more just cause.

Also, I just saw a pic of the cops who are handling the case. They were photographed wearing dhotis and coming out of the temple. All of them were wearing a huge gold chain around their neck. It looked quite heavy as well. Were they all owners of this before or did they just pick one up while doing the stock take? <_<

I these days like to donate whatever small sum i can in gurdwaras only or temples(gurdwaras and temples of those kind that does lunger and all for poor people ) or even outside mosques where those poor seek some money.......not spent on golden thrones i have had enough of that ....

Exactly.





Recently in a temple near by my house which is pretty famous i guess. (in kerala) One guy (i dont remember his name) donated Gold equal to his weight in Kg's to the temple for some sort of pooja which came up to 140-180Kg's of gold. This is utter bullshit (No offence to anything).With that sort of money,a full village of poor people can be saved but instead giving it by the name of God's is just nonsense.

As for the misconception that this was a unknown treasure, it wasn't. The Royal family, who runs the trust that runs the temple, knew abt this. And lot of people in these circles knew that there are treasures inside the cellars.

Lots of theories are there regarding this.

1. That the kings hid it from British(Take that u pr**cks. :P. Bet you scratching ur heads now.)
2. The kings collected these money and kept it in cellars when people in Travancore was starving
3. This is a very widespread one. The travancore family kept it there was a sign of life of humility. The king gave all his wealth to Sree padmanabha and he led a simple life. This is a true fact if u read abt histroy of this family. they are simpletons. Even today if someone from their family visited the temple, they will wash their feet when the leave the temple. It is a symbol that they are not even taking a single grain of sand from god. And the king still visits the temple every day or week. I used to see his car(lancer, ford, contessa etc no benz, rolls, bentley. ALthough there is a gold plated rolls there. very old one) several times in mornings.

One more thing to tell when someone says this belongs to the country and all. According to rules and democracy it is.

Not exactly according to history and all that. This belonged to Travancore. Kerala consisted of 3 small kingdoms. Travancore is the south most from cochin border to kanyakumari i guess.

But now as democracy kicked in, whatever rocks everyones boat is acceptable.

And people saying this should be sold - Already tonnes of our treasures are abroad sitting on heads of white people. Taj mahal used to have precious stones in laid in marble. The whites picked them to the last pearl. This might be our LAST "NATIONAL" TREASURE. A real one at that. Poverty and all, you want to let this go too? If they start to sell this, rest assured you wont even get 20% of the value for national development.

If they are simpletons, they clearly dont need it. The money can be used to do so much good to the country. No point in it sitting in an old cellar doing absolutely nothing, like it has been for 100s of years now.

As far as my understanding goes,if this money is used by the governent or anyone,it will increase the amount of money circulating in the economy and bring inflation.
May be wrong ofcourse


Economics 101: money multiplier. The money will generate jobs by investment, meaning more money in hands of people, it will increase inflation, yes but that can be countered by RBI or perhaps it wont be a problem as the aforementioned increased money in hands of workers.

Economics 102: all looks dandy in theory.

Hence, a no. of things can happen if the money if brought into economy, but all is moot as it will stay in grubby hands of fat pundits. I really, really hate this blatant hoarding.. i mean what are they trying to prove ?? I am agnostic and believe god wont be happy wearing a big necklace, a donation to charity or a free school with necessary facilities will go a long way pleasing god instead; the main reason i consider the Akshardham temple to be a big sore sight (drive pass that daily).

There are ways to control that. Make a separate committee with the right people for it. I dont want all that wealth just sitting doing nothing earning no interest or anything.
