Mahalaxmi Temple & Haji Ali Dargah

The temple is located near Mahalaxmi Station in Mumbai and was built in the 18th century. This iconic structure can be seen from the land and the sea as it towers above many other nearby structures. Along with Haji Ali Dargah, a mosque which is just 3 minutes away from Mahalaxmi Temple, these two religious sites are two of the most popular destinations for locals and tourists, and for good reason. People of any religion can visit each place and seek blessings. The Temple has the architecture of a classic Hindu Temple and has beautiful iconic statutes of many Hindu gods, in particular the Goddess Mahalaxmi.
