The mysterious sealed door of the old Padmanabhaswamy temple is protected by two giant cobras that are painted on the door. There are no latches, bolts or anything else that could be used as an entry through the door. It is believed that behind the door there is an unimaginable wealth. The only one who could enter through this door is a Sadhus with a high level, who is also familiar with the Garuda mantra chant.
According to ancient beliefs, this mysterious door with no means of entry was sealed by sound waves that came from secret chants that were lost in time.
According to Hindu priests, there is no one who can open the door. No human can chant this mantra and open the door.
The Padmanabhaswamy temple is a mysterious, ancient and glorious temple. It is believed to be one of the wealthiest places of worship and institutions in the entire history of the world. It is estimated that in the underground vaults there are 22 billion dollars worth of jewels and gold.
