About Shree Mahalaxmi Prasanna, Panaji
The portuguese were in Goa for 300 years before they would allow the construction of a Hindu temple in 1818. They dedicated to the goddess of wealth. This temple has only one other real claim to fame. In the 16th century, after the Portuguese invaded, the idol of this deity was transported and hidden secretly in various places. Today the temple is popular with the locals during festivals such as Dussera and Mahashivratri and also Navaratri and Chaitra Purnima.

Shree Mahalaxmi Prasanna, Panaji Reviews
It is a religious site. So there are almost no english explanations like they would be at a tourist attraction. Calm, quiet place with an aura of dignity.
Wonderful temple and ambience at the centre of panaji
Located in the heart of the city. Parking is a hassle do be prepared to walk a bit
This is very beautiful temple with very good maintenance without crowd , so anybody wanted to visit temple near Panaji can visit here. The temple is a complex of temples in the foothill location and in main Panjim city. Ganesha temple is in the entrance and Mahalaxmi is beautiful. The hall is big. Coconut, flower and other meterials are available outside the temple. Not many tourist comes here but its very good temple. Hindus must visit this temple.
Good temple! You will also get 'darshan' of all major Gods as there are many smaller temples around.
