Since few weeks Indian Temples are in world news for their great Treasures, especially those located in South India. After discovering world’s biggest treasue in Sri Padmanabha Swamy Temple of Tiruvananthapuram in Kerala District, the attention is being drawn towrds other temples in the State of Andhra Pradesh in South India.
One such temple which has drawn immediate attention with confirmed Treasure under it is the SriNarasimha Swamy Temple at Ahobilam in Nallamala deep Forests in Kurnool district in the State of Andhra Pradesh. The stone scriptures and palm leaf scriptures reveals that underground den sealed with big stones just in front of Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy’s main idol, is having a very big Golden and dimonds treasure hidden by South Indian King Sri Krishnadevaraya of 16th Century. It is confirmed by the Temple priests and also the age old people of the region.
Since three decades several attempts were made by several people to plunder this Treasuer, but who ever attempted so far died immediately. One Archeology Professor, who tried to dig the surface stone of the Treasure in the Temple, died on the spot when some poisionous fumes have erupted from the side hole of the earth twenty years ago. Yet in another incident an Engineer who attempted deliberatly to break the surface stone of the Treasure failed in his attempt, and when going back from the Temple in his car, just a few yards away he died in accident by hitting his car to a tree. In one more incident ten years ago two young adventurous people tried to dig the Treasure just a few yards away from the actual spot of the Treasure in the Temple, were suddenly swarmed by thousands of Honey Bees and both of them died within few hours, even though the temple staff and villagers tried to save them. Some people also say the former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Mr.Marri Chenna Reddy also got some secret survey done in and around the temple premisis to findout the Treasure, but for some mysterious reasons he withdrew from that task. Subsequently no attempts were made by any one to dig the Treasure.
It is said that some mysterious power is protecting the Treasure, so the Temple staff constructed a round wire fencing around the surface stone, considering it as sacred place not to be tread by anyone with feet. It is said that when the the Ghajani Mohamad and other Arabs invaded on India to plunder the vast opulances of the then Indian Kingdoms, the Kings used to hide the Treasures below the Temples or in dens to protect them from being plundered by enemy countries, by invoking certain powers like “Naga Bandham” or “Yuksha Bandham” or “Bhetala Bhandam” or “Shakinee Bandham” etc. Those invisible powers used to protect the Treasures, and it is believed that still such powers or other divine powers are protecting the Treasures in India.
The scriptures around the Temple says that the Treasure can not be taken out now by any one, as still one more generation has to pass as per the dates of the Scripture. So it is better not to make attempts to discover the Tresure below the temple to avoid pre-mature death according to Temple Priests.
Similarly in Vundavalli rock caves in Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh, there is a 15 feet single stone Sri Anantha Padmanabha Swami Statue which resembles Sri Anantha Padmanabha Swami of Tiruvananthapuram, where it is said there is a large Treasure inside the caves and it has also got a secret tunnel towards Temple of Panakala Lakshmi Narasimha Swami which is located on a Passive Valcano in Mangaliri road. Ten years agao, some adventurists who entered by not heeding the warnings of temple priests have never come back.
