MOTHER MAHALAKSHMI OF KOLHAPUR

SOURCES

As it has carved out an eminent niche in the temple that Bharat Khanda is, many immortal works embody a vast corpus of information that highlight its origin, deities, rulers, bhaktas and the like. Among them, Karvir Mahatmya, Kolhapur Mahatmya, Devibhagavata; Matsya, Padma Markandeya and Brahmanda Puranas and the Mahabharat. Harivamsa deserve special mention. They embody many outstanding episodes and illustrate its glory in full. Sonic Jain scriptures, like Brihatkatha Kosha also embody certain episodes dealing with the greatness of this place. Besides, the archives furnish several facts with dates, like the endowments made by the rulers and the philanthropists. Patience and labour yield much more invaluable information fit for several doctoral theses, since certain parts of the temples - Hindu, Jain and Buddhists are lying hidden due to convulsions in the earth that occurred in the past.
