Goravanahalli Mahalaxmi Temple

Ishvarim Sarvabhootanam Tamihopahvaye Shriyam

Mahalaxmi is considered as “Goddess of Wealth and Prosperity”.    Story behind this temple is very interesting and that starts with a very poor man named Abbayya.   He used to take his cows out for grazing and will have his food near a pond.  He kept on hearing a voice, which said “Shall I come with you” for some days.  He was scared since he was not able to see anybody but finally after some time, he replied back saying she can come with him if she is not an evil spirit and he saw a “Mahalakshmi Idol”.  He took that home and started worshipping everyday and soon he became a wealthy person in the village.  He built a small temple for the goddess and worshipped her with great reverence.  This was continued until Abbayya and his brother Thotadappa were died.

From 1925 onwards, “Shrimati Kamalamma” started worshipping the goddess and soon many people who visited this temple benefitted.  By word of mouth, temple became famous pilgrimage center.
