    Shree Mahalakshmi Temple was established on January 31, 1990 under the auspices of Shree Vidya Pitam. Dedicated to Goddess Mahalakshmi, this holy place of worship was established under the able guidance of Shri Prameya Chaitanya, the Acharya-in-charge, whose vision of leading the community both through Bhakti Marg as well as Jnana Marg became a reality with the establishment of Shree Mahalakshmi Temple. Murti of Lord Lakshmi Vinayaka (Lord Ganesh) was installed in the year 1993. Click to enlarge the Photo.

    The modern day no doubt abounds in comforts provided by science and technology, however even the most sophisticated equipment cannot bring the mental calm, that is so essential for happiness. Building inner courage and strength is only possible through prayer. In the present day and time the only guarenteed protection is Divine protection and to receive this one needs Divine Grace. This grace is invoked by puja and prayers and by participating in Mahayagnas and worship. Since the installation of the murti of Lakshmi Vinayaka and Lakshmi Anjaneya, devotees initiated to the mantra, by the priest, participate in Japa sessions held every Chaturthi day for Lord Ganesha and every last Saturday of the month dedicated to Lord Hanuman. Also japa is offered to Mother Mahalakshmi on every full moon day.

    Prayer to Lord Hanuman is said to bring intellectual strength , fame, courage and fearlessness. Every year, a nine day prayer and yagna of Lord Hanuman is conducted at the temple, which is attended by a large number of devotees. Murti of Lord Hanuman was installed in the year 2000.
