KOLHAPUR - MOTHER TEMBLAI MANDIR
interesting visit worthy place lying at a distance of 5 km is
Temblai mandir and it is to this shrine the Utsavamurthi of Mother Mahalakshmi
is taken out on the Aswini Sukla Panchami in procession. It has a very
interesting story, the Mother Temblai, according to legends is the younger
sister of Mahalakshmi. Due to some minor misunderstanding over a trifle,
there ensued a quarrel betwen the sisters and so she left home and settled down
permanently here in a separate mandir. Out of boundless love for sister, Ambabai
visits Temblai every year on the fifth day of the Aswini. Would not the genuine affliction
cross the emotional floods? Anger does not taint the cherished
affection. This is an elegantly built mini shrine that possesses all the patts.
Its sculptural beautification are worthy of admiration.
It is 5 km off Mother
Mahalakshmi temple in Kolhapur.
