Mahalakshmi Temple, Mumbai

4.6
Religious Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
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.

  • Mahalakshmi Temple.. A nice popular temple. Go and take some blessings from and spend some time with inner soul.  more »
  • If you are bounded by time, this temple should not be on your 'must visit' list. There are very long queues. You will have to spend a long time standing in the line, getting roasted in the midday sun....  more »

  • Very nice, clean and peaceful temple. Security personal are very helpful and polite. Flower vendors are nice but blocking the pavement. Municipal Van come sometime to seize the vendors belonging but that is not enough. Some more strict actions required. In case of emergency, it will be difficult to enter fire tender.
  • Their queue system is systematic, the temple surroundings well maintained , appreciate if they'd provided shaded places or pavements while standing in queue from road level , yes also their security system is pretty efficient. Any selfie lovers, look out they don't allow you to click photographs. Their toilets can be improved and maintained well.
