KOLHAPUR-MAHALAKSHMI

The title of Malialakshmilabdhavaraprasad is used by the later Shilaharas as well. Thus, three important dynasties of early medieval Maharashtra, the Rashtrakuts, the Kadambas and the Shilaharas treated Karvirvasini Mahalakshmi as their family goddess. Several subordinates of the KaIyan Chalukyas like Sobhneyya, the governor of Kolhapur and Avararaj, another official of the same dynasty were great devotees of this goddess.

Other epigraphic records mention the grant of lands for the daily Worship and other rituals of the goddess. The grants are from various Shilahara and Yadav princes like Bhoja II (1182 A. D.) and Singhana Yadav (1218 A. D.). Numerous other references to the kshetra and the devi are found in medieval inscriptions and also in literary works.
