Mahalaxmi Temple, Mumbai, Maharashtra

The prominent Mahalaxmi Temple was built by Dhakji Dadaji in the year 1831 and one of the most iconic landmarks of the mighty Mumbai city on the sea coast built on an elevated surface above sea level on the edge of the cordon that separates land and sea. It is a spectacular monument and edifice of architecture and presents visual respite from the continuous stretch of sea constantly banging against the rocks and the cordon wall on the shore. The Mahalaxmi Temple is a religious place of worship dedicated to a triumvirate of goddesses in the Hindu school of religious beliefs and ritual practices. The Temple is the centripetal force of all prosperity and development surrounding it. It has also inspired the naming for the famous Race Course of Mumbai as well.

The Mahalaxmi Temple along with the Siddhivinayak Temple are two of the most important places of religious worship for Hindus living in the city as well as from other parts of the country. It draws huge throngs of people who flock to offer their obeisance and offer oblations to the triumvirate of goddesses during Navratri which is the most important religious festivals for Hindus in a calendar year. The Mahalaxmi temple is dedicated to Mahalakshmi, the predominant deity of Devi Mahatmyam and the inner sanctum of the temple contains the idols or images of the triumvirate goddesses Mahalakshmi, Mahasaraswati and Mahakali.

All the three images have been decorated heavily with expensive embellishments and jewels including gold bangles nose rings, and pearl necklaces.
