Early morning we went to Mahalakshmi temple, Kolhapur's most visited site for hundred's of years and even today it's brings most tourists to the city. Our tour would be completely incomplete without spending sometime at the iconic Mahalakshmi temple.... "Home of Peace and incarnation of new life"
Proceed onward to Kolhapur and take blessings of Shri Mahalakshmi (Ambabai) considered one of the Shakti Peethas of Hindu Mythology. This famous temple was first built in the 7th century and has beautiful architectural design. It is said that both Shri Lakshmi and Shri Vishnu (Lord Venkatesha) reside in this area eternally. The deity of the Goddess Mahalakshmi is made of gemstone and is considered to be at least 5000 to 6000 years old.
