Top 15 Richest Temples in India

I had heard about rich people but was shell-shocked when I found out there are rich temples, and that too only in India. I couldn’t believe it and had to experience these religious places myself. So last year, I got my chance, and this year, I will share my experiences of the Top 15 Richest Temples in India with you.   

Tirumala Tirupati Venkateswara Temple: To see this magnificent temple, you must go to the 7th peak of Venkata Tirumala Hill, South of the Sri Swami Pushkarini river. Being the religious person I am, I was very excited to get to the temple, and the 8 ft tall statue of Lord Venkateswara in there was mesmerizing.
