  • One if the finest temple I have ever seen. You can visit it but it usually takes 1-3 hour to take darshan depending upon crowd. It is a crowded place and in morning prayer takes place in between 5:30 to 6:00. The structure is awesome and rock cut architecture is looks amazing. There is baggage counter but it is closed in early morning so be planned for your baggage. Bathroom facilities provided outside of temple area so no issues. Multiple hotels and cheap lodges available in the vicinity so staying here is no issue. You can a planned a day trip so you can visit multiple places alongside temple.
  • Had a peaceful experience and took the blessings of Goddess Mahalakshmi. Queue system was good and it was not much crowded when we there in the evening. The temple was decorated with lights and was very beautiful to see.

  • This temple is one of the Aadhipeetam of goddess Mahalakshmi. The structure of temple is very different from South Indian temples. This temple is nothing but just beautiful. If you are planning to visit this temple in Kolhapur, wait! there are also some other places to visit in the city.

Look close to the train station for some of the most conveniently located options, offering good access to the main sights of the old town to the west. East of the station, either side of Station Road, sit the luxury hotels, making use of the increase in space with additional facilities.
