 Coconut shells of gold found in sree padmanabhaswami temple

Two coconut shells fashioned out of pure gold were found too. One was studded with precious stones including rubies and emeralds.
 The golden ‘anki’ used to adorn the presiding deity was found in 16 parts. An ornament used to adorn the chest of the deity and studded with emeralds was also found on Saturday. 
The Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple was built in the 16th Century by the kings who ruled over what was then the kingdom of Travancore, according to BBC News. Local legend says that the Travancore kings sealed immense riches within the walls and vaults of the temple.
