Indian temple treasure rediscovered

Post by annis » Mon July 4th, 2011, 5:22 am

A treasure trove of gold, diamonds and precious stones hidden for centuries was discovered in the underground vaults of a temple in Kerala, a temple official said, as authorities scrambled armed police to guard the shrine.
Hopefully some photos might appear in the next while!
