about mahalaxmi temple

The Mahalakshmi Temple located in Kolhapur is among the top 18 Maha Shakti Peethas listed in various Hindu scriptures. The temple is of special religious significance being one of the six places where it is believed that one can either obtain salvation from desires or have them fulfilled. It is believed that Mahalakshmi and Vishnu reside in this area.

The idols and the temple architecture suggests that the temple was built during the Chalukyan period (550 ADEto 660 ADE). The original temple was destroyed during an earthquake in the 8th century, the ruins of which can still be seen around the present structure. Apart from the primary deity, the temple complex has shrines dedicate to Mahasaraswati, Ganesha, Shiva and Vishnu (in his incarnation of a boar carrying mother Earth).

The present structure was built and expanded over the course of many centuries and kingdoms (from Shilaharas to Marathas), as seen from the various architectural styles seen within the temple complex.
