Create an itinerary including Mahalakshmi Temple
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Mahalakshmi Temple and other Mumbai attractions using our handy Mumbai vacation builder site.

  • Temple of Mahalaxmi devi in South Mumbai is one of the oldest in the city. One can walk in at any point of time in the day. There are some stairs but not many, hence even senior citizens can visit...

  • An old temple of Shree MahaLakshmi devi. Devotees can get flower and garland from dozens of stalls near the temple. Walk-in visit is most convenient.

On weekdays there will be no rush & Separate line for gents and ladies , they've free chappal stand at the temple. The backside of temple had beautiful sea view but it's not clear now because of the coastal project . From Mahalakshmi station you’ll get taxis to reach temple. # Visit Haji Ali Dargah (which is walkable distance from the temple)
