In India, As Goddess Laxmi is the bestower of wealth, there is special place of her in all devotees. In Hindu pantheon, she brings happiness and prosperity and salvation also. The eight forms of Maa Lakshami are very splendid but it is not found in all temples except very few temples.
In the country, there are two Ashta Lakshmi temples, one is here in Hyderabad and other in Chennai. The design and structure of the temple was conceived by the famous architect named Ganapati Sthapathi. The statues of Goddess Ashtalakshmi, God Sriman Narayana, Lord Sri Ganapati and Sri Garuda were carved and designed by Sri. Subbaiah Sthapathi.
As Ashtalakshmi has her eight forms of Mahalakshmi. The forms are Santaana Lakshmi, Gaja Lakshmi, Dhana Lakshmi, Dhaanya Lakshmi, Vijaya Lakshmi, Dhairya Lakshmi, Adi Lakshmi and Vidya Lakshmi.
Now the temple of Ashtalakshmi has become the main center for the activities of religious and spiritual.
