Lord Vishnu is portrayed in the same Yoga Nidra (Yogic sleep) position with his hand resting on top of a Jyotirlinga (Lord Shiva) with Lord Brahma atop a lotus rooted in his navel. The masterful depiction encapsulates the beginning of time as told in ancient Indian scriptures.

More than a mere jewel, the Shri Ananth Padmanabhaswamy idol measures 8 inches in height and 18 inches in length. Handcrafted by 32 people working 16 hours every day for two months, this masterpiece weighs 2.8kg and is adorned with around 75,000 high-quality diamonds, totalling 500 carats. Each diamond has been thoughtfully sourced, masterfully polished and skilfully set. It boasts the finest Colombian emeralds and natural Burmese rubies that fabricate a spectacular, mesmerising look perpetuating divine elegance.

Tushar Agarwal, Managing Director of Shiv Narayan Jewellers, expressed his gratitude, stating, “We are honoured to have created this piece for the respected Dr B. Govindan. Achieving the two Guinness World Records titles with this piece, along with our previous eight Guinness World Records titles, is a testament to the dedication and skill of our team. Shri Ananth Padmanabhaswamy holds great spiritual significance, and we are proud to have collaborated with such a revered symbol in creating these extraordinary records.”
