The temple is great, though it requires you to walk quite some distance from the road but the space where you can sit by the sea & enjoy the Mumbai skyline is amazing

Right on the seashore, it's a wonderful shrine. Mother Mahalakshmi accompanied by Mother Saraswati and Mother Kali bless devotees. Nowadays, thousands of devotees throng, hence quite a long queue. One must spare at least one hour to have darshan of Mother.

The temple is small compared to most temples and it definitely needs renovation and better management.

I was never a devotee of mahalaxmiji until I was settled in Mumbai. When I went there first I felt I am meeting with my mother the warmth this temple offers is incomparable.i always wish to be there once in a month so that can get a glimpse of my mother mahalaxmiji.pease be there without her Mumbai is incomplete.she fulfills wishes and takes care of her true children!!

Go for the pupose of visiting a temple of the deity; stay focused on that and dont get distracted by the crowds - ridiculously crowded. Best to go early in the morning or afternoon so as to avoid crowds. Take your time to walk around at leisure outside the main alter. You can sit on the steps leading to the sea and have a quiet moment there to maintain a sense of sacradness of your visit. This can be easily lost with all the noise, crowds and speed with which they ask you to move on from the alters.
