Would love to know...
Front closed.

One of 3 keys

On front, "pallathur" in Tamil, which is a village in India
Other marking on front. Can't find translation

Found this safe yesterday. It's approximately 3 ft tall, 18 inches wide. On the front it says "pallathur" in Tamil. Inside are paintings of, I believe, Lakshmi, the Hindu diety of wealth and good fortune, and Rukmini & Krishna. It is extremely heavy. Has 3 skeleton keys that go to it. I have only been able to find one photo of it online, which I will include, but the article that goes along with it has absolutely nothing to do with the safe itself. I've found a couple somewhat similar photos online but not exact.
