The world around us holds many mysteries – the ancient pyramids of Egypt and Stonehenge in England continue to torment the scientists with its puzzles. No less mysterious and ancient Indian temple of Sri Padmanabhaswamy, built in honor of Lord Vishnu, which still keeps the mystery behind the sealed door.
Note the history of this temple goes back thousands of years and dates back to the 4th century B. C. However, in the form in which we know it today, the temple exists since 1731.
In the main hall of the temple is its Shrine a statue of the Supreme God Vishnu with a height of 5.5 m. the God reclines on a bed of giant snake tysjacheletnego.
Curiously, the statue is visible from all the three gates. However, one of the gates only show her feet, others the stomach and others head and hands.
In addition, the temple has earned the glory of the richest in the world. All of its outside walls covered with gold. Besides, his underground vaults found the treasure, the largest ever found.
So long lived the legend of that in the vaults of the temple are hidden untold wealth. Incredibly, in 2011, this legend became real. It turned out that in addition to the visible part of the majestic temple, Padmanabhaswamy hidden and largely invisible wealth.
It all started with the fact that the lawyer sundara Rajan in 2009 appealed to the Supreme court of India with a petition. In it, he demanded to open underground storage and make a proper record of stored treasures. There were suspicions that the priests themselves sometimes steal. Judges have supported the concern of the lawyer.
Despite the dissatisfaction of local residents who believe that to touch the wealth of the gods is unacceptable, five of the six are located under the temple vaults were opened, what found was an unprecedented sensation. About a ton of gold coins, a ton of gold bars, chests of diamonds, emeralds, rubies, and this is only the beginning.
Most importantly, the Golden statue of the God Vishnu, throne, studded with precious stones, gold painting weight 36 kg, a huge chain of length 5, 5-meter, 500-kilogram Golden sheaf, the list goes on.
However, a full accounting of the jewelry was not held, and they continue to slowly disappear.
Now the temple is guarded round the clock by more than 200 police officers, equipped with CCTV cameras, metal detectors, there is even heavies. But this is not enough.
But the sixth door remains sealed. It is sealed, although it is unclear how – there’s no locks, no latches, no holes for a key. On the door is a big Cobra with multiple heads. According to the legend, behind this door is stored, the emergency reserve of the God Vishnu, and to touch it is forbidden.
The priests of the Church clearly opposes, arguing that it promises sorrow and trouble. Something like Pandora. Many listen to him, especially after the mysterious death of Sundar Rajan, who was the initiator of all events. It happened a week after the opening of the vaults. The official version says that he died of a fever, although health did not complain for a long time and was not sick.
Try to open the door, according to local residents, was made once, by the British in the late 19th century. But when brave souls entered the dungeon, they attacked the huge hordes of snakes, which they failed even the most powerful weapon.
