Sri Padmanabhaswamy temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Vishnu located in Thiruvananthapuram, India.The shrine is currently run by a trust headed by the erstwhile royal family of Travancore.The temple is one of 108 Divya Desams principal centres of worship of the deity in Vaishnavism.The temple, constructed in the Dravidian style of architecture is glorified in the Divya Prabandha, the early medieval Tamil literature canon of the Tamil Alvar saints, with structural additions to it made throughout the 16th century CE, when its ornate Gopuram was constructed.The most recent renovations to the temple occurred in the 18th century CE.Services were provided to the local community with the temple’s revenue.The temple gave its name to Kerala’s state capital Thiruvananthapuram.Thiru Anantha Puram means Sacred Abode of Lord Anantha Padmanabha.
The principal deity Padmanabhaswamy is enshrined in the Ananta sayanam posture.Travancore Kings regarded themselves as Padmanabha dasa.In late June 2011 a review of the temple’s underground vaults was undertaken by a seven member panel appointed by the Supreme Court of India to generate an inventory leading to the discovery of a vast hidden collection.Estimates suggest that the temple could be the richest in the world unofficial estimates on the sixth day of the inventory placed the value of contents at close to Indian Rupee symbol.svg100,000 crore.The riches come from the donations that were made by the Royal family and the traders, who used to come from other parts of the country and abroad as offerings to the diety and were sealed within the thick stone walls and vaults of the temple for over a millennium.Zee news reported that the value of the Ancient offerings made to the lord Padmanabhaswamy may be in excess of 500000 crore.The temple is now considered wealthier than the Tirumala Venkateswara Temple in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh by official records considered to be the richest shrine in India.
