The Padmanabhaswamy temple in southern Kerala uncovered billions of dollars worth of jewels in its vaults which have not been opened in almost 150 years. Bags of diamonds, gold coins and more were part of the largest find of its kind in India. The Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple was built in the 16th Century by the kings who ruled over the then kingdom of Travancore. The haul’s value is now thought to have risen from 25 billion rupees ($500m) to 900 billion rupees ($20.3bn).
