Mahalakshmi Temple (Code: 211) – Mounted Photo Print


$ 46$ 77

Built in the 18th century, during the British rule, this temple comes with an intriguing history. The British made several attempts to stop the sea at Worli creek from making inroads into the mainland and flooding low-lying areas, by constructing Hornby Vellard, but the sea wall kept collapsing. Legend has it that one night, the Indian Chief Engineer, named Ramji Shivji Prabhu, dreamt of Goddess Mahalaxmi, who instructed him to retrieve three idols from the bottom of the sea. He found the idols and decided to build a temple to house them, and the work on the Vellard was completed without a hitch. The temple, dedicated to the three deities – Mahalakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth, Mahakali, the destroyer of evil and Mahasaraswati, the Goddess of Learning –  was completed in 1785.  The fact that the temple got its name from Mahalaxmi, perhaps established the ethos for Bombay becoming the country’s financial capital.
