Mahalakshmi Temple, Mumbai (Bombay)

(1,000+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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. Put Mahalakshmi Temple into our Mumbai (Bombay) tourist route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Ancient temple. Good location. Sea facing. Not wheel chair friendly. Lot of steps to climb.
  • Serene and beautiful. Mahalakshmi Temple is located very close to sea. The view from temple is absolutely amazing but the temple is too crowded. Closest Railway station Mahalakshmi can be reached by share-taxis. Take bus towards Haji Ali and ahead for beautiful Mumbai experience.
  • Nice temple. Very very crowded on peak days. Lots of stores to shop too. Amazing view. You can feed pigeons at the entrance. And walk down the temple to the shore.
  • Very nice Temple of Shree Mahalakshmi Mataji. So many people came from all part of India to pray and get blessed. Cleanliness is very poor and must be taken care. Temple contains beautiful Idols of Mahakali, Mahalakshmi and Mahasarsvati. This temple was built in 1831.
  • An Ancient temple of goddess mahakali, Mahalakshmi n mahasaraswati. Just behind d temple r steps to reach d Arabian sea shore. Very kind n loving goddess. Fulfills every wishes n grants blessings!!!
