BanglaHunt Desk: In the midst of the election tensions in Hyderabad, a temple has made headlines. This ‘Bhagyalakshmi temple’ (bhagyalakshmi temple) is being discussed and reviewed at various levels. Ever since Union Home Minister Amit Shah visited the temple a few days ago, many questions have been raised about the history and present of the temple. Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has proposed naming Hyderabad Bhagyanagar after the temple.
Bhagyalakshmi Temple in Hyderabad
Adjacent to the south-east tower of the famous Char Minar in Hyderabad is the Bhagyalakshmi Temple. It is said that mother Lakshmi lives in this temple. The structure of this temple is made of bamboo poles and triple. According to the priest in the temple, this temple is about 800 years old. However, the exact date of construction of this temple is not yet known.
The goddess originated from a piece of stone
The priest of the temple said, ‘There was a picture of the goddess on a rock earlier in the place of the temple. Since then, devotees have been worshiping the stone goddess for years. The two silver ornaments that can be seen at the feet of the goddess from outside the Bhagyalakshmi temple are actually pieces of that broken stone. But since pieces of stone cannot be worshiped, a picture is first worshiped. And now a statue of the goddess has been erected. '
Lots of devotees come to this temple
This temple, which has four minarets in Hyderabad, attracts a large number of devotees at different times. During Diwali, many devotees come to visit mother Lakshmi. Devotees believe that worshiping the mother in this temple with devotion brings happiness and prosperity in life. Many people think that the name of this Hyderabad used to be 'Bhagyanagar'. But later Qutb Shah, the fifth Sultan of the Qutb Shahi dynasty of Golkanda, changed the name of Qutub Shah, Bhagyanagar to Hyderabad.
Hyderabad BJP MP and Home Minister Amit Shah has claimed that the Bhagyalakshmi temple is much older than the four minarets in Hyderabad. This temple was built around 1591.
