Shri Mahalakshmi Temple

Built in 1831 by a Hindu merchant named Dhakji Dadaji, this beautiful temple attracts numerous devotees daily, and more so on Diwali and Navaratra. On these two occasions, Shri Mahalakshmi is believed to come alive and grant the wishes of her worshippers. The other two deities housed here are Shri Mahasaraswati and Shri Mahakali. The vernacular domestic architecture of the temple and its unique surroundings, dotted with sweet and flower shops, make Mahalakshmi Temple an integral part of Maharashtra tourism.
