Goddess Laxmi

Temple History

The Mahalaxmi Mandir is situated on main road just beside the MTDC Office. This temple is very near to Sai Baba Mandir Gate No.3 five minutes walk from the temple.

Dwarkamai Baba occassionally visited it on his begging rounds and the temple is mentioned in the Sri Sai Satcharitra as Baba once sent his devotee there on an unusual mission Bala Ganpat Shimpi had tried all sorts of medicine to cure his malaria, but nothing worked and he had a raging fever. Baba gave him a curious prescription " Give a black dog some rice mixed with curd in front of the Laxmi templeā€ Shimpi wondered how he could carry out this instruction, but he found the necessary ingredients and took them to the temple. There he saw a black dog wagging its tail. The dog ate the proffered food and Shimpi quickly recovered. The temple has recently been restructured.

The main deity is Goddess Mahalakshmi devi. Ashta lakshmi devi idols along with Ganesh ji, Lord Shiva, Navagrahas and Sai Baba idols are the main deities of this temple. Mandir Poojari conducts the Baba aaratis daily here.
