For two hours Kṛṣṇa remained like an ordinary child gripped in the coils of Kāliya, but when He saw that all the inhabitants of Gokula--including His mother and father, the gopīs, the boys and the cows--were just on the point of death and that they had no shelter for salvation from imminent death, Kṛṣṇa immediately freed Himself.

Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple After the Venkateshwara Temple in Tirupati, Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple, a temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu in Trivandrum, is the richest temple in the world. Temple treasure has been discovered there worth 20 billion US Dollars. The Principal Deity, Padmanabhaswamy, is enshrined in the "Anantha-sayanam" posture (in the eternal sleep of Yoga-nidra on the serpent Anantha). The Royal Family of Travancore have been the custodians of this temple since the 14th century.
