Mahalakshmicha Vidmahe Vishnu Patnicha Dhimaye Thano Lakshmi Prachodayathu!!
Sri Maha Lakshmi is the Hindu goddess of Fortune Wealth and prosperity and wife of Lord Sree Maha Vishnu one among the trinity of gods. Generally any temple has the idols of various gods who are worshipped regularly by devotees but its rare to find a temple exclusively constructed to house Sree laksmidevi. This temple located in Prashant Nagar HB colony phase-2 has a interesting history behind its construction according to the current Chairman of the Temple Trust Sri Shivakumar Konda in the early years of formation of HB colony phase-2 all the colony members felt that they should have a place of worship in the extra land that was allotted by the municipality. After deep contemplation to finalize which temple to be constructed they sought the advice of well learned preists and Vaasthu pundits who surveyed the premises and advised the temple committee to take up the task of constructing a temple exclusively in the name of a female deity and by doing so the entire families living there will be blessed.
Since Lakshmi devi is a powerful goddess who can change the fortunes of mankind without having a second thought in the year 1998 the group of families in the colony decided to construct a Lakshmi temple and with meager resources that were pooled they just placed a photograph of Lakshmidevi and started worshipping her in a thatched structure with the blessings of the mother goddess and unstinted support of local families in the colony and other elders in prime positions the temple today is very popular in the locality. As years passed the temple committee mobilized funds for developing the temple and the vigraha prathistapana (Idol Installation) was done as per vedic standards in the year 2002 .The idol of Sree Lakshmi Devi is very attractive seated like a yogin on a lotus pedestal and holds lotus in her hand, a symbolism for fortune, self-knowledge and spiritual liberation. The iconography of the idol in the temple shows her with four hands, which represent the four goals of human life considered vitally important to the Hindu way of life namely Dharma Kama Artha and Moksha. Every devotee who visits this temple can experience peaceful and vibrant energy upon getting a darshan of the goddess and the the Dwaja Sthambam at the main entrance is very attractive daily rituals to Lakshmi Ammavaru are performed by chief priest Sri Srinivasacharyulu who has been associated with the temple right from its inception.
