Agroha (Devnagari: अग्रोहा धाम) is a Hindu temple complex in Agroha, India. Construction started in 1976 and was completed in 1984.[1] The temple is dedicated to the Hindu goddess Mahalakshmi.

History and development[edit]

The decision to construct the temple was made at the convention of All India Aggarwal Representatives in 1976. The trust was established for this purpose under Shri Krishna Modi and Rameshwar Das Gupta.[2] The land was donated to the trust by Laxmi Narain Gupta and construction was started under the supervision of Tilak Raj Aggarwal. The construction of the main temple was completed in 1984 while construction of other features started in 1985 under Subhash Goel.[3]
