Tirupati Temple
Tirupati, Nov 24: An unidentified devotee has donated 160 diamonds worth a little over Rs 1 crore to Lord Venkateshwara. The diamonds were found in 'hundi" (donation box) from a packed velvet bag when the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) Parakamani staff were sorting out the offering made by devotees.

The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) is widely recognised as the richest temple body in the world with annual earnings to the tune of Rs 700 crore. However, the devotee who made the offering has not been identified yet.

TTD sources said that, a gemology certificate was also found along with the diamonds. Staff at Parakamani believe that a devotee must have dropped the diamonds in the hundi on Tuesday (Nov 22).
