GURUVAYUR: The Guruvayur Devaswom deposited 400 kg of gold with the State Bank of India Mumbai branch under the gold deposit scheme on Thursday. Guruvayur Devaswom chairman Thottathil Raveendran handed over the gold ornaments to the SBI General Manager in the presence of Guruvayur Devaswom administrator V Ratheesan, managing committee members Mallissery Parameswaran Namboothiripad, Gokulam Gopalan and temple deputy administrator P.V.Somasundaran.

The gold ornaments offered to Sree Guruvayurappan are normally kept at the Devaswom lockers. The gold deposit is made for a term of 7 years and the Devaswom will receive interest during the period. Instead of keeping the gold ornaments without any income in the Devaswom lockers, the managing committee decided to deposit the gold under the SBI gold deposit scheme, said the temple’s deputy administrator.
