SC panel to evaluate Padmanabha Swamy wealth despite warning


Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple
Thiruvananthapuram, Aug 14: The expert panel deployed by the Supreme Court to evaluate the wealth found in the vaults of Sree Padmanabha Swamy temple has decided to continue with its task of assessing wealth despite warnings of dire consequences by the temple seers after a recent devaprasanam (astrological ritual to ascertain the god's will) was conducted.

The panel, headed by CV Ananda, vice-chancellor, National Museums framed a routine to scientifically assess the wealth.

The Royal family of Travancore conducted a devaprasanam before the panel could begin its work. During the devaprasanam the priests revealed that the deity of the temple was against the assessment of the temple wealth as well as opening of other secret vaults and warned of dire aftermaths if the vault was opened.
