●Belphegor's prime is the palindromic prime number
1000000000000066600000000000001, a number which reads the same both
backwards and forwards and is only divisible by itself and one.
●The name Belphegor refers to one of the Seven Princes of Hell, who was charged
with helping people make ingenious inventions and discoveries. The number itself
contains superstitious elements that have given it its name: the number 666 at the
heart of Belphegor's Prime is widely associated as being the _ _ _ _, used in
symbolism to represent one of the creatures in the Apocalypse or, more
commonly, the Devil.

larvae out. One of the journeys undertaken in the Last Chance to See was to
see this species.

Last year, the Travancore Royal Family filed suit against the
Padmanabhaswamy Temple officials, arguing that a particular practice
went against the very nature of the temple’s deity. The practice was

its core, after all, is a 15th century hymn, and the practice has been
avidly followed across South India since the late 1960s. Still, the family
said, it is not appropriate to the Padmanabhaswamy Temple deity’s “yoga
nidra,” even if it is appropriate in other temples.
What was the family’s objection? What happened in the late 1960s to
propel this practice into such popularity?
Playing the Venkatesha Suprabhatham is

web and mobile based healthcare platforms in the world, and allows users to
discover a doctor and book an appointment in his/her vicinity based on
distance, availability, consultation, gender and recommendation. In 2015, the
