The idol of Mahalakshmi, shown riding a tiger and a demon (Mahishasur), is the best of all.

However, after the Hornby Vellard was completed in the year 1784, the creek was filled. It was then that the present day Maha Laxmi Temple came up at the site. The gate of the temple has been adorned with elaborate embellishments and beyond it is the sanctum that enshrines Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth.

One of its most fascinating features is its grain-strewn courtyard, where one can see flocks of pecking grey pigeons. The festival of Navratri sees the maximum rush inside the premises of the Mahalaxmi Temple of Mumbai. During this time, the temple is beautifully decorated and the idols are dressed in the most brilliant of clothes and jewelry. Apart from this, the temple also witnesses heavy crowd during weekends.
