Mahalakshmi Temple, Mumbai

4.5
At Mahalakshmi Temple, witness how devotees passionately worship the Hindu goddess Mahalaxmi, the central deity of the sacret text called the "Devi Mahatmyam." Look for the statue of the goddess (devi), which the chief engineer dreamt of and actually recovered from the sea during the temple's construction in 1831. Examine the idols adorned with nose rings, pearl necklaces, and gold bangles. If you want to make your own religious contribution, head over to the stalls to purchase flower garlands and make an offering. Even though the site is small, it can get crowded, so time your visit accordingly.

  • This temple is extremely divine and peaceful. Situated on Bank of Arabian sea. View is very nice.
  • Nice temple with arabian sea on one side. Crowd is managed by having two separate queues for ladies and gents. On the back side of the main temple, you can find devotees trying to stick coins to the wall. It is a belief that if the coin sticks to the wall your wish will come true.
