  • Superb... No other word... Lord is worship... I was really glad and blessed by lord Mahalaxmi and no words can describe. The temple is so much warmth giving and positivity that all the energy and aura of lord makes is feel delight... The queue so not there so the darshan of lord was easy with all peace.... All the worshipper must visit during the working day so that there is less of a queue.... We as a human are always looking for the blessings of lord which was warmth giving....
  • Beautiful place to visit. One of the oldest temple in India. It’s ancient architecture which is still preserved. A must visit place. Everything can b covered within 2-3days in kolhapur.people of there respect tourists and talk with respect. Auto rickshaw is very worthy. Blessed to have and go to see the goddess with my best friend and felt so blessed.👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
