A treasure trove of gold, diamonds and precious stones hidden for centuries was discovered in the underground vaults of the temple, a temple official said on Sunday, as authorities scrambled armed police to guard the shrine. Local media said that the search team's finds included a four-feet-tall gold statue studded with emeralds, 15-feet-long gold necklaces and jewel-encrusted crowns. The estimated value of the hoard is 750 billion rupees ($17 billion), but officials said they were yet to assess the findings. Picture taken February 18, 2011.
