Kolhapur is recognized as one of the popular shaktipeetha in Maharashtra. As per Hindu tradition, Shakti peetha is nothing but pilgrimage destinations in Shaktism with a specific shrine. Kolhapur is also known as “Dakshin Kashi”. The city is located at the southwest corner of Maharashtra. You can reach Kolhapur by Railway, state transport bus, by private car as well as by flight as well. Kolhapur city is a great combination of ancient tradition and modern culture. Because of the religious significance and historical importance, every day more than thousands of pilgrims and tourists visit Kolhapur and Shree Mahalaxmi Temple. However, similar to another pilgrimage area like Shirdi, Akkalkot, etc, Kolhapur doesn’t have any Annchatra facility for pilgrims. Intending to serve food facility that is annadan to devotees and pilgrims, Shree Mahalaxmi Annachatra Seva Trust started in the year 2008 on the pious day of Shakambhari Pournima. Our trust has undertaken a well-planned program to provide meals every day for the outside pilgrims which have free between 12 to 3 pm. For the last 10 years, we are serving free meals i.e. “Annadan” to the pilgrims of Shri Mahalaxmi. Nowadays, daily more than 5 to 6 thousand pilgrims are taking Prasad i.e. “Annadan” We would like to say proudly that the progress of Trust Object has been grown up significantly within a short period. Shri Mahalaxmi Annachatra Seva Trust is an authentic organization registered under “The Bombay Public Charitable Trust Act, in the year 2008”. We are running our Annadan program i.e. to provide free meals to outside pilgrims which have become successful on the support and kind co-operation of donors.
