Golden idol of Vishnu found at Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple

A golden idol of Mahavishnu and a golden ‘anki' weighing close to 30 kilograms were among the articles unearthed from one of the six vaults at the Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple here on Saturday.
The inventorying of the vaults is being done by a seven-member panel appointed by the Supreme Court.
The golden idol of Mahavishnu is believed to be a replica of the ‘utsava vigraham' in the Temple and has a height of about one foot (12 angulams). Another idol fashioned out of pure gold was also found.
