New Delhi: The Amicus Curae on Wednesday told the Supreme Court that Kerala's Padmanabhaswamy temple is in a pitiable condition. The Amicus Curae told the court that the kallaras or the place where the temple gold has been stored has to be sealed and the keys have to be in the custody of a district judge.

There is no accounting for the donations that are offered at the temple, there has to be a special audit, the court was told.

There has to be an inventory of the lands held by the presiding deity of the temple and there is a need for a hand on administration in the temple, the court heard.

The hearing will continue on Thursday.
