Supreme Court big decision on Padmanabhaswamy Temple

New Delhi: The Supreme Court (SC) on Monday recognized the authority of the Travancore royalty in the management of the Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Kerala.
The SC said in its order that committee headed by the Thiruvananthapuram District Judge will now look into the temple arrangements.
This system will remain in place until the formation of the main committee and the Travancore royal family will play an important role in the committee. The apex court, however, did not say anything about opening the vault B of the historic temple.
The centuries-old temple, dedicated to Lord Padmanabha, grabbed headlines in in 2011 after it was revealed during an inspection that the four underground cellars of the temple contain gold ornaments, vessels, jewels and precious stones worth thousands of crores of rupees.
