The human race is probably the most interesting race in the world. Us, humans, have had one of the richest history, and we can trace that line back from whenever, AD, BC, thousands of years ago. Religion has also been one of the biggest historical value humans have, and it is impeccable how many religions and practices are present not just today but even before. One of this fascinating religion is Hinduism, a religion that flourishes until now especially in the country of India.

Now, Hinduism is a great practice and it has the most aesthetically beautiful temples for praying. One that stands out the most is the Padmanabhaswamy temple in Thiruvananthapuram. It is a temple dedicate for Lord Vishnu, who, in Hinduism, is the creator of the universe.

Padmanabhaswamy temple is not only beautiful on the outside but it is also full of secrets. The temple has one of the richest hidden treasure in the world. Because it was built for Lord Vishnu around 5,000 years ago, many royal families, dynasties and dynasties of royal family have offered gifts to Padmanabhaswamy temple.

However, the most interesting one is the 6th vault, or Vault B, which is rumored to be the biggest and the richest of all the vaults in the temple. The Travancore Royal Family revealed that the treasures in Vault B might have a total price tag of a trillion dollars. If this does bear truth, then Vault B in Padmanabhaswamy might hold the biggest hidden treasure in the entire world.

Somewhere off the west coast of Scotland is a tiny, remote island considered the most far-away portion of the British Isles. It is virtually uninhabitable; an island of jagged granite boulders, tall cliffs and a hostile climate.

The remote archipelago was inhabited for about 4,000 years. The only settlement, the Village Bay, was located on the largest island Hirta.
