It is situated on the Bhulabhai Desai Road, on the northern side of the Malabar Hills. The picturesque location of the temple, along with the reverence attached to it, lures devotees from far and wide. Locals as well as tourists throng the Mahalaxmi Temple of Bombay in large numbers, bowing before the deities and praying for happiness and prosperity.

Apart from the exquisite idols of the three presiding deities, the temple also enshrines the images of several Hindu goddesses. However, the idols of the three Goddesses have been molded in gold. Further beautifying the magnificent images are brilliant pieces of jewelry, comprising of nose rings, gold bangles and pearl necklaces. The idol of Mahalakshmi, shown riding a tiger and a demon (Mahishasur), is the best of all.

However, after the Hornby Vellard was completed in the year 1784, the creek was filled. It was then that the present day Maha Laxmi Temple came up at the site. The gate of the temple has been adorned with elaborate embellishments and beyond it is the sanctum that enshrines Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth.
