This temple has an elaborate story behind it, which states that it was built somewhere in the 19th century. Goddess appeared in the dream of P.P. Dadasaheb Hate and commanded him to take idol out of the ground and construct a temple. Following the dream, Dadasaheb excavated the exact site and found a statue of Goddess Laxmi that was covered in mud and sindur. A temple was built at the spot, which gained immense recognition over the years. Param Pujya Guruvarya Dadasaheb Hate Om Shree Maha Laxmi Mata Mandir Trust manages Mahalaxmi Temple activities.
