|Legally the padmanabhaswamy temple treasure belongs to the temple;since the temple and the treasure have been well preserved by the royal family,they should be allowed to do so without any intereference from the govt;the govt should provide adequate security;the treasure must be periodically audited by the court;the temple authorities should start a vedic school where hindus from all over the world can come and study the vedas;they should be provided free board and lodge;after completing the course, they can work in temples or perform rituals in peoples homes;the temple can also do some social welfare activities particularly in the former travancore region;|

|The author has to be congratulated for the attempt of posting this article. The details regarding the wealth are yet to come out, since just visual assessments alone have taken place. A committee under the convener-ship of Dr.Ananda Bose have been entrusted with the job of actual evaluation of the findings. Only after that a clear picture will be available. |
As far as temples in general are concerned this type of hidden wealth are possible, no one has looked into it.
