Shree Mahalakshmi Temple is located at the North of the Malbar Hill on Bhulabhai Desai Road.
This temple is dedicated to the three deities Shree Mahakali or Durga (Destroyer of Demon), Shree Mahalakshmi (Goddesses of Wealth) and Shree Mahasaraswati (Goddesses of Learning).
Navaratri and Diwali are the special events that are celebrated at Shree Mahalakshmi Temple.
Why the temple was built? It so happened around 1760s that the contractor Ramji Prabhu was suppose to connect the two islands of Worli and Malabar creek. But sea waves were so strong that it was impossible to connect the islands. Than Shree Mahalakshmi Goddess came into the dreams of Ramji Prabhu. He then constructed the temple of the Goddess Mahalakshmi as instructed in his dreams and hence succeeded in connecting the islands.
