The Supreme Court on Monday canceled the January 31, 2011 order of the Kerala High Court asking the state government to set up a trust to take control of the capital and management of the historic Sri Padmanabhaswamy temple.

The apex court gave this decision while hearing the petitions challenging the order of the High Court in this case. One of these petitions was filed by the legal representatives of the Travancore royal family. Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple is counted among the wealthiest temples in the country. This grand temple was reconstructed in its present form in the 18th century by the Travancore royal family, who ruled southern Kerala and parts of Tamil Nadu adjacent to it before merging with the Indian Union in 1947.
