HYDERABAD: Will the famous Birla Mandir in Hyderabad turn into another Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple, having a treasure trove worth crores? Suspecting that a secret treasure could be hidden under the temple for centuries, the department of Archaeology on Saturday started excavation activities.

The work commenced after one DS Rama Raju, working as manager in a PSU told mediamen that he had tried to find out the treasure under the hill but failed a few years ago. P Chenna Reddy, director, department of Archaeology said, “Based on the claim by Raju, we have taken up digging operation to find out whether treasure is really hidden or not.”
