The process of making an inventory of the priceless articles locked up in underground cellars of the famed Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple in Thiruvananthapuram has revealed gold ornaments, vessels, jewels and precious stones worth hundreds of crores.

Sources said that the precious objects listed in the first days alone would run into at least Rs 700 crores in the present market rates.

The magnificent temple, built in 18th century by King of erstwhile Travancore princely state Marthanda Varma, is run by a trust, controlled by the royal family.
Till Thursday, five of the six secret chambers were examined by the panel.
While reports claimed that several hundred crores of assets were listed so far, a temple official said that all these reports were speculative and nothing has been revealed to the press so far. Of the six chambers, two were opened after several hundred years.
