Sri Maha Lakshmi Ashtak was composed by Indra, and is written in Padma Purana. In Bangalore, I find ladies singing it in temples as commonly as Durga Chalisa is sung in temples of North India.

Kamakhya Devi temple on Neelachal Hill on the outskirts of Guwahati in Assam celebrates the creative force Shakti. Kamakhya Devi is named so as she is a giver of desired wishes. The deity is ageless. Three natural stones depicting Kali, Lakshmi and Saraswati are in an underground chamber beneath this dome. The temple’s architecture is unique, especially the dome. It is unlike the North Indian tapering Shikhara. And certainly unlike any South Indian Gopuram style temple shikhara :-)
