Territories of most of the kings were larger than England, Spain, Portugal, France or Germany. Thenumber of invaders that invaded India are too numerous to count and all through this some departed with the loot while others stayed here to rule. Most of the treasures belonging to royal families were seized after India’s Independence by Indian government. Here is a list of Top 10 Alleged Indian treasure that remain a legend, yet to be discovered and have become a part of the local folklore.
10. Sri Mookambika Temple (Kollur, Karnataka)
Sri Mookambika Temple nestled in the foothills of Western Ghats of Kollur in Karnataka is a busy local pilgrimage. The temple sees a huge surge in the devotees in the nine-day Navaratri festival. A bizarre note to be made here is that over the last few years temple’s income hasn’t exceed 17 crores; however, the shrine board has spent more than 35 crores for developmental projects over the last 10 years. Priests of the temple believe the symbol of serpent in the temple is a clear sign of great hidden treasure beneath the temple. The serpent is meant to protect the treasure from the outsiders. Even barring the treasure, value of temple jewels itself is estimated to be more than 100 crores.
