Thrissur: Security at the four-century old
Lord Vilwadrinatha temple at nearby Thiruvillamala has been
strengthened following reports of a treasure trove in the
temple, police officials said.

District Superintendent of Police Debeshkumar Bahara
recently visited the temple and reviewed the security at the
complex.

A vigilance official of the Cochin Devaswom Board (CDB),
which manages the temple, had also inspected the structure
following reports of a treasure trove in the temple, CDB
sources said.

The CDB, which controls more than 400 temples in the
districts of Ernakulam, Palakkad and Thrissur, has also taken
steps to deploy more personnel to man the temple.

Early this year, treasure troves estimated to be worth
thousands of crores of rupees were discovered inside the vault
of Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple at Thiruvananthapuram.
