The jewellery, gold coins, silver, diamonds etc. worth thousands of crores of rupees found in the vaults of the sri Padmanabha Temple in Thiruvananthapuram belongs to the people. It might have been kept there by the kings or donated by the many rich people in the past. Keeping the antiques as part of of cultural tradition and worksmanship, the gold, silver etc. should be taken over by the government and utilised effectively for health, education and so on for the poor people of the country.
