Reviewed 22 September 2018

Ancient Temple and considered to be very powerful. Heavily crowded most of the time but there are some window period during the year, like, monsoon time, just before or after a festival season. Preferable to visit during those time. Make sure you sacrifice your sleep and visit the temple at 5am so as to get good "darshan". There are a number of deity around the temple complex and make sure from which side you have entered as there are 4 entrances and from inside all looks similar. Despite catering to such huge crowds the temple is fairly clean and the locales are also very helpful. Do not bring your car as parking is an issue and no video/photography is allowed, although the security is not so strict as I saw some people taking photographs in the temple.
Overall a kind of "holistic" experience.

This is a famous one and only one place where Maa lakshi stays. as per hindu mythology. The inner soul get purified by the simple darshan of Mata Laxshi aslo known as ambadevi. With peaceful internal surrounding embedded in beautifully crafted pillars maa lakshmi temple brings in the old age indian sculpture art at its best.

What I liked:
The Mahalaxmi idol & the stone carvings are really beautiful.

What needs improvement:
The walk from car park to the temple can be troublesome. The distance itself is not great but you have to wade through roads which are crowded with people & unruly vehicles with loud horns and emissions. And if it has just rained, you will have to face all this on slippery rubbish roads. It's better to take an auto rickshaw to the temple.

Maha Laxmi jee's temple was very good annd the architecture was too good. Single rock cut 1100+ years old. The temple has a lot of peace.
