A treasure was born from Vishnu's navel

Lying Vishnu, lotus and Brahma
Bags full of jewels and precious stones, gold coins of the Napoleonic period, rings, necklaces, bracelets with diamonds, rubies and emeralds, gold necklaces meters long, crown, inlaid with precious stones sticks, plates and cups of gold.
For a first estimate of the treasure found in India is worth about 500 billion rupees ($ 11.2 billion) and it should be the greatest treasure ever found in the country and one of the richest ever found in the world.
We are in Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), capital of Kerala, wonderful state in  south India and under the floor of the temple dedicated to Sree Padmanabhaswamy has been found what is presumably a maharaja's treasure, hidden there before independence from the British crown .
But there’s more, the exploration of the underground excavations of the temple is still in its beginning and it is possible that further discoveries are made. There are two of the six vaults were opened in the subsoil for the moment.
Only after a legal battle and court ruling of the local authorities had been able to start the research as the descendants of the Maharaja of Trevancore still ran the temple through a foundation, and they strenuously opposed the initiative and announced that they have appealed against the sentence .
The temple, also known as Ananda Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple (from here the name of city) is dedicated to the god Vishnu on the serpent Ananda in its infinite quiet, Anananthasayanam position, after the end of time he has absorbed all that exists.From dreaming Vishnu's navel borns a lotus on which Brahma is located who, according to one of the many Hindu cosmogonies, realizes the world that Vishnu dreams.
From here the name of the temple, in fact in Sanskrit padma means lotus and nabha navel.
