LAXMI TEMPLE

LAXMI TEMPLE

The Lakshmi Temple, next to a pond known as ‘Laxmi Tal’ is intimately linked to the life of Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi. The Rani used to regularly pray at this shrine.

It was the chief temple of Maharajas of Jhansi as it housed their ‘Kul Devi’ or Patron Goddess. The temple was built by Maratha Subedar Shivrao Bhau (1794-1814 AD).

The temple witnessed grand celebrations and festivals such as Diwali and Dusshera, and the Maharajas granted several villages in jagir to the temple for its upkeep.

After she married Raja Gangadharrao, Rani Laxmibai used to pray here every Tuesday and Friday. On festivals, she used to hold great havans and pujas here, following which alms would be distributed to the poor.

Today, while the grandeur of the temple has faded, it still serves the local community, who visit to pray Goddess Lakshmi.
