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.

  • It is the best time l had at Mahalaxmi temple. Very few devotes at this time no rush at all. Also was able to view the beach. Taking photos are strictly prohibited. There are security persons and they will not allow to take the pics. Taking blessings from goddess Mahalaxmi is like achieving success in your life. You are more charged to solve the problems of your life.
  • This place is superb. Once you get into the temple you would feel tranquility away from the chaos of the city, you can feel the divinity of the goddesses. The sea view from the temple is amazing. If you are in Mumbai do not miss the chance to visit this place.
  • Good place and very famous among people. In this new year almost 1 km. Long queue.. Better to visit in weekdays
  • Not sure, parking was there or not in front of the temple. Our driver or travel guide dropped us on the opposite side of the road. And from there we crossed the road, walked through the market area and have a good time at temple also on our way to temple. Temple was crowded but we had a good time there.
