  PURI - MAHALAKSHMI SHRINE

Though forming an integral part of the great Jagannatha mandir, this archamurti Mahalakshmi has its entity, existence and so, exclusive prayer services are offered independent of other shrines. All but due to her imposing stature and having a mandir majestic in construction and adornments This was built along with the main mandir by Chodaganga Deva. Its architectural style bears a striking resent balance to the main temple in towers, halls and sculptural adornments Its honorific name is Tripabhuti Vaikunta Manimandap and it is enshrining an enchanting statue of Mother Mahalakshmi, the darling spouse of Sri Mahavishnu. This shrine is held in high veneration and in its spacious halls almost all the religious discourses are held regularly. It is a tradition that every visitor invariably sits in meditation for a few minutes It is a scriptural command implemented with due reverence. This shrine houses in addition to Mahalakshmi an august icon of Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy, Adi Sankara offered prayers here and his icon is installed at the holy feet of Lakshmi Narasimhaswamy as a mark of his sculful obeisance to the potent archamurti and the Lords' special favour extended to him. On account of holding two most worshipful deities in one main mandir adoration confers double merits. Locals invariably visits on important functions celebrated in accordance with Vaishnava agamas. Gudies take the pilgrims, to this sannidhi without fail.

It lies in the vast temple campus of Lord Jagannath in Puri, accessible by bus and train.
