Param Pujya Guruvarya Dadasaheb Hate Om Shree Maha Laxmi Mata Mandir Trust owns Hedavde Mahalaxmi Temple. The temple, situated in Hedavde village near Vasai, forms an important part of a famous Shakti Peetha. The Shakti Peetha to which this temple belongs is the one where Goddess Sati's ankle fell during the fierce Tandava by Lord Shiva while He was on His way to Kailash.

This temple has an elaborate story behind it, which states that it was built somewhere in the 19th century. One night, a goddess appeared in the dream of P.P. Dadasaheb Hate, who was a local goldsmith and farmer. The goddess commanded him to take Her idol out of the ground and construct a temple. Following the dream, the man excavated the exact site and found a statue of Goddess Laxmi that was covered in mud and sindur. A temple was built at the spot, which gained immense recognition over the years. Babasaheb Hate started the daily custom of Maha Prasad here.

Several rites and rituals take place at Hedavde Mahalaxmi Temple on a daily basis. It is flocked by a large number of devotees during various festivals including Guru Purnima, Ghat Stapana, Hom Havan, Dasra, Tripurari Purnima and Shree Gurudat Jayanti. Prativarshik Yatra – the annual procession of the temple – takes place in the month of May.
