The temple management trust formed a committee for testing, valuing and weighing of assets and properties under the temple's possession in March this year.

In an asset testing and evaluation drive held at the temple earlier this month, the trust had recorded 12.95kg gold, 65.176kg silver, a pearl necklace weighing 29 grams and a dollar.

 The jewels include gold, silver and other valuables donated by Manikya kings of the princely state to the temple.

The temple is one of the 51 Hindu Shaktipeeths of the country and is considered one of the holiest Hindu shrines. Maharaja Dhanyamanikya installed the idol of Tripura Sundari in 1501 AD on a hillock, 55km from Agartala. It is close to Udaipur, which was then called Rangamati and was the capital of the princely state.
