Velcroman1 (1667895) writes "The most spectacular archaeological find of the 21st century — billions in gold and jewels uncovered in the secret sanctums of a centuries-old Indian shrine — will soon be revealed to the public. Last summer, archaeologists opened the underground chambers of the 16th century Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple, located in Kerala province in southern India. They discovered six chambers, labeling the vaults A through F, with the help of temple priests. What they found was startling: Sacks of diamonds and gold, coins dating back hundreds of years, crowns and other antique jewelry, precious gemstones wrapped in silk, and so on, according to initial reports. Vault B, which is guarded by serpents according to local legend, has yet to be opened. But those sepulchers that have been explored do contain gold statues, gems and other items valued anywhere from a few billion to as much as $40 billion. A court-ordered inventory of the active temple has plodded on for nearly a year, hampered by accusations of mismanagement and theft. The results of that inventory will be unveiled in days. And then what will happen to what may be the world’s most valuable religious site?"
