Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple one of the most famous temples of Kerala State will be getting an advance security system which will be installed soon following the discovery of antique treasures in its ancient subterranean vaults in 2011.

A no-fly-zone backed by an aerial surveillance system, blast proof perimeter walls topped by power fences, seismic sensors to protect the treasure vaults from tunnelling, surveillance cameras, baggage scanners, burglar alarms, and a visitor tracking system are the major components of the multi-level security system planned for the temple.

Electro-hydraulic bollards, short vertical posts, and road blockers designed to “absorb impact loads up to 1,000 Kilo Newton and stop an eight-tonne vehicle travelling at 80 km per hour” have arrived from Germany to be installed 50 m away from the four main entrances of the temple.

Officials said the command centre would “fuse together” all components of the temple’s security system, including its 30-member quick reaction team of “Thunderbolts Kerala” commandos, in the event of an emergency or security threat.

An array of video screens will enable the centre’s controllers to monitor the precincts of the temple, track visitors, sound alarms, issue advisories over the public address system, warn temple security and direct commando teams and emergency services in the event of a threat.
