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 the temple conveniently. Garlands and sweets for offerings are available outside the temple.

Visitors are welcome to visit the temple and gaze at the shiny brass-covered Mahalakshmi in a silver-covered shrine. Just leave your shoes in the racks before the steps. Note separate lanes for women and men. Strictly no photography here, but security didn't object my bringing a camera and cell phone as long as I didn't use them. Continue around back for small shrines to Ganesh, Hanuman, and Shiva plus sea views and a tea shop. Countless shops along the entry road sell flower and coconut offerings, sweets and religious souvenirs. Temple wasn't crowded when I visited late afternoon on a weekday.

The Mahalakshmi Temple is one of the most popular temples in Mumbai. It is dedicated to the Tridevi goddesses - Mahakali, Mahalakshmi and Mahasaraswati. All these deities are lavishly adorned with jewellery. The main deity, Mahalakshmi, is at the center shown holding lotus flowers. It is an interesting place of attraction for spiritually motivated visitors.

If you are bounded by time, this temple should not be on your 'must visit' list. There are very long queues. You will have to spend a long time standing in the line, getting roasted in the midday sun (if you decide to visit in the afternoon), before you are allowed entry into the temple. But do visit it if you have got the time.

Mahalakshmi railway station is named after goddess Mahalakshmi. This temple is located at walkable distance from railway station. Temple is very crowded at Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Mahalakshmi temple is one of the oldest and iconic place to visit in mumbai. This temple is sea facing.

Mahalaxmi temple is one of the oldest and one of the most temples in Mumbai. Along with Laxmi, they have idols of Saraswati and Kali too. Try and visit the temple during weekdays or off-peak hours to avoid rush.

The temple can get you married. And if you are not married, the sea behind the temple is ideal to catch a few private moments.

The true secret behind Mumbai's wealth and happiness. Whoever visited Maa Mahalakshmi, they will be sure to healthy & wealthy.

The three idols of - Maa MahaaKaali, Maa MahaLakshmi and MahaaSaraswati are glimmering in divine glory. Blessings come your way quite naturally provided you pray with utmost devotion and selfless prayers

The temple is not just a holy place where thousands of devotees visit for pray & Pooja, it is also beautifully located just on Arabian Sea; like touching the feet of Maa Mahalakshmi, even if you aren't religious you must be to this temple to experience the beauty of this place, lovely breeze and nice open spaces. Mumbai Darshan Buses cover this place in their regular schedule.

Keep half day (1-3 Hrs) during normal day and (2-5 Hrs), during Tuesday and Friday for Maa Mahalakshmi Temple visit. This excludes travel time.

During your visit be prepared to face long Queue of devotee; however I personally observed the Queue Management of this temple is one of the best amongst many temples and quite fast.

You will observed 50+ Flower Shop, like other Temple, they'll force u to buy flowers and other things, normally full thali cost you Rs100 to Rs150 only. Check and ensure the Pooja Thali cost before collecting it.

Here Men and Women darshan queue are separate, means you and your spouse will be in separate queue, and darshan will be separate, kids can join either of you. Hence before joining the Queue, please mark a some place / shop, where you can re-join your family after Darshan.

Don't Forget to visit, Hanuman Mandir, back side of Maa Mahalakshmi Mandir (Down stairs at back side of Mandir), here you will have beautiful view of Arabian Sea and feel of lovely breeze.

Also visit Dhakleshwar Shiva Mandir right side of Mahalakshmi Temple. This Mandir is having 200 Year "old Shivalinga"

Make sure you have tried and holed the coin to wall of back side of Maa Mahalakshmi, Mandir, it is believed incase your coin is holded at wall, you have full blessings of Maa Mahalakshmi.

This place is well connected with public Transport, you can avail Best Bus or Taxi from Mahalakshmi or Mumbai Central. Autorikshaw do not play here.

Incase you are coming by your own vehicle; you can park it at new Multi story BMC Parking at Bhulabhai desai Road. This Parking is hardly 100 Mtr from Mandir and cost is Rs.25 Per Hour.
