Mahalakshmi Gauri Temple
The temple is open from 06.00 a.m. to 01.00 p.m. and from 05.00 p.m. to 10.00 p.m. Aarties are performed in the morning and evening.
Devotees should take bath in Lakshmi Kund and worship Mahalakshmi. Devotees have also been advised to perform the rituals for their forefathers and give alms to needy people, whereby they will be blessed by Mahalakshmi.
Kashi Khand states that the entire locality is a Shakti Peeth (seat of vital energy). There are many powerful Devis in the area and of all the Shakti Peeths in Kashi, Mahalakshmi Shakti Peeth is the most powerful. Devotees who worship Mahalakshmi regularly will attain all kinds of Siddhi (divine powers) and achievements.
Mahalakshmi will always reside in their homes. (Here Mahalakshmi is symbolic of wealth and prosperity). Further, in Chapter 100, Kashi Khand has prescribed Nau Gauri Yatra (religious pilgrimage of nine Gauris) and Mahalakshmi is the ninth Gauri.
