The mysterious door of the ancient Padmanabhaswamy temple has no bolts, latches or any other means of entry. It is protected is protected by two massive cobras painted on it and it is said to house unimaginable wealth, and can only be entered by a high level ‘SADHUS’ familiar with the knowledge of chanting a ‘GARUDA MANTRA’.
It is believed that door, with no bolts, latches or any other means of entry,was sealed shut by sound waves from a secret chant lost in time.
As Hindu priests say that at present, there is no human capable of opening this door by executing these chants.
Padmanabhaswamy is a glorious ancient temple which holds the title as the wealthiest institution and place of worship of any kind in the recorded history of the world, with an estimated $22 billion worth of gold and jewels stored in underground vaults.
Its gold-plated exterior allows only a small portion of its true glory to be seen.
This temple is located in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India. It features 8 underground vaults out of which only 5 have been opened and explored.
The Temple has been referred to in the Sangam Period of literature between 500 B.C and 300 A.D several times. The temple is one of the 108 principal Divya Desams (“Holy Abodes”) in Vaishnavism, and it is glorified in the Divya Prabandha.
However, there isn’t a single historic record where is mentioned the date of its discovery.
At some places, both the Temple and the entire city are often eulogized even as being made of gold, and the Temple as Heaven.
The hidden chamber which is guarded by two massive cobras presents the most impressive yet mysterious feature of this ancient temple. Anyone who dares to open the door will meet disastrous results, as legends says. This mysterious door is referred to as Chamber B.
Six of the chambers are opened yielding approximately $22 BILLION worth of gold in the form of diamonds, jewelry, golden utensils, weapons, golden idols and diamond necklaces which approximate weight of around 500 kilograms, a length of around 18 feet, plus countless bags full of golden coins acquired from different parts of the world and ceremonial costumes included 66 pound solid gold coconut shells studded with rubies and emeralds.
The contents hidden inside the mysterious chamber, as it is believed by many, go far beyond materialistic riches, even though priceless antiquities made of gold, and diamonds wait on the other side. According to VEDIC astrologers, if any ‘ordinary human’ attempts to open the mysterious Chamber-B, other than by the chanting highly sacred and powerful ‘GARUDA MANTRAS’, catastrophes are likely to occur in and around the Temple premises, with apocalyptic scenarios throughout India or even the world.
According to an inventory that took place in 2014, Vault A of the temple contained 2,000 pounds of gold coins, dating to around 200 B.C.
Vault B of the temple can only be entered by a high level ‘SADHUS’ familiar with the knowledge of chanting a ‘GARUDA MANTRA’, as it was said. At present, there is nobody in the world who possesses the highly sacred and powerful ‘SIDDHAPURSHAS’ and how to execute the highly sacred ‘GARUDA MANTRA’.
Historical accounts suggest that another chamber exists, built out of thick walls made of solid gold where the mystery really exists, and contain the largest undiscovered treasure find in the history of the world.
However, a group of people tried entering the vaults in 1931. They had to flee for their life’s as they discovered a place infested with cobras. Some data from 1908 also mention similar stories.
The Sri Padmanabhaswamy temple is one of the most protected places on the planet. It is guarded by metal detectors, security cameras, and more than two hundred guards equipped with heavy weapons.
