Mahalaxmi Temple Tips (3)

Built in 1785, Mahalaxmi (or Mahalakshmi) Temple is one of the holiest Hindu temples in Bombay. It is dedicated to Laxmi, the goddess of wealth and Vishnu's consort. The temple is located by the sea at the northern end of Malabar Hill and is easily seen from the Haji Ali Shrine further north.

Mahalakshmi Temple

This temple is located near Haji Ali's Mosque in northern Mumbai. Built around 1785, the history of this temple is supposedly connected with the building of the Hornby Vellard. It is said that when the British failed in their repeated attempts to connect the Mahalakshmi area to Worli by building Breach Candy on account of ferocious tides, they had almost surrendered. The problem was fixed only by divine intervention when the goddess Lakshmi appeared in the dream of the chief engineer and asked him to remove three statues from the sea bed and establish them in a proper shrine. A search operation was launched to recover the statues and a temple was built. The three statues are images of Goddess Mahalakshmi, Mahakali and Mahasaraswathi.
