Mahalaxmi Temple, Ponda

This temple in Ponda is one of the beautiful modern temple here with a unique architecture local to this area.



The temple has a huge beautifully decorated arched entrance with a pillared hall. On the top of the arch there are beautiful sculptures of two elephants around the outer spire. 




Facing the facade is a black stone light tower next to another light tower having the same colour as the temple.


The principle deity of the temple is Goddess Mahalakshmi. The architecture of the temple has two octagonal domes with the one on the top of main sanctum bigger among the two.
