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.

  • Very nice, neat and clean temple. Not crowded at all on normal days. One can get sea view from back of the temple. Street is little narrow to reach temple.Parking is not readily available. Shoe keeping people will be there free of cost. One should try to paste coin on back wall of main temple. For sitting, place is there.
  • Temple by the Sea. Very good queue system with separate lines for men and women. The place isn't very big but they make do quite well with what is available wrt crowd control etc. Leading roads are narrow and usually packed. Parking spots are rare. Better to park in some mall nearby and get a taxi to reach here.
  • Very nice temple. But there is no place where you can put your boot or shoes. You have to pay 10rs for some shopkeeper there. Nice market around temple. Good food I found in that market. Must take visit to get blessings for MAA Mahalaxmi.
  • Its a temple so nothing much can be written but found the temple premises to be clean. However make sure that you have a good 2-3 hours at your disposal as at times the queue can be serpentine. Food options inside the premises are available although within the peripheral area of the temple there isnt a dearth as well. Most of the taxis ferry here and something that i found interesting was these drivers did not charge a rupee more than the meter nor took any tip. So the thought of taxi drivers looting pls steer these thoughts away.
  • This is famous temple in Mumbai city. Very nice temples at side by side. Also there is no crowded place. We may visit in any days. But there no stand for keep the shoes...
