About Temple
 

Shri Mahalakshmi Temple is located at the North of the Malbar Hill on Bhulabhai Desai Road, Mumbai 400 026. The beauty of the temple, its mythological importance, its proximity to the seashore and its Dhwjstambha all combine together to make the place a wonderful tourist attraction, as well.

Situated within the Municipal ’D’ ward, the Mahalakshmi Temple precinct is bound by the sea on the western and northen edges and Bhulabhai Desai Road on the east and south.

This temple is dedicated to the three deities  Shri Mahakali or Durga (Destroyer of Demon), Shri  Mahalakshmi (Goddesses of Wealth) and Shri Mahasaraswati (Goddesses of Learning).

In the month of March/April and September/October i.e.during Chaitra and Ashwin Navaratra , the Sun rays of rising sun fall on the deities for few minutes.

On entering into the temple compound one sees about 10.60 meters high single wooden block covered with silver sheets Dhwajstambh and also Deepmala carved in stone. Then on entering the Sabhamandap one sees  a Lion (covered with silver) fixed in the centre of the Sabhamandap facing the deities. The area of the Sabhamandap facing the deities is approximately 12.10 meters X 9.10 meters. There are 27 apex tops on the Sabhamandap, two wooden idols of Jay-Vijay covered with silver located on two sides of main door of Gabhara.

There are small idols of Shri Ganpati and Vithal - Rukhamini on two sides outside Gabhara or the Sancto Sanatorium. The gabhara is about 11meters X 11 meters.  On entering in the Gabhara devotee first gets darshan of three deities (i.e. Mahakali, Mahalakshmi and Mahasarswati and on the top of the simhasana there is Annapurna.). The throne of the deities is beautifully carved and part of it is covered with carved silver sheets. The top i.e Kalash of the temple is about 15 meters in height. On the main gate of Gabhara there is “Shreeyantra” also known as “ Laxmi Yantra”.  The entire ‘SIMHASAN’ in the gabhara is covered with beautifully carved silver sheets with elephants and peacocks on the front side pillars.
