Padmanabhaswamy Temple – History, Treasure and Secrets

The Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Thiruvananthapuram is dedicated to Lord Vishnu, who as per Hinduism is the preserver of life. Here he can be seen in his ‘Ananta Shayana’ form (eternal yogic sleep), on the infinite serpent Adishesha (Sheshnag).

Though Padmanabhaswamy Temple has always had a steady influx of pilgrims over centuries, it shot into limelight recently when the word of its enormous treasure trove became public. Some of its vaults still remain closed, but whatever treasure has yet been discovered has catapulted this temple to being the Richest Temple in the World.
