Dakshinavarti Shankh  ( दक्षिणावर्ती शंख) is a very rare kind of shankh (conch shell)  that has opening on the right side or have clockwise rotation when viewed from front.   Dakshinavarti Shankhas  are very very rare and  auspicious.   These type of  Shankh is also known as Shri Lakshmi Shankh or Valampuri Shankh.   The true Dakshinavarti Shankha has the three or more horizontal lines (ridges) at the inside center opening. The Valampuri is the favourite of Goddess Lakshmi and it is considered very auspicious to keep this Shankha in pooja for all round prosperity.

Dakshinavarti Shankh is the symbol of Goddess Maa Lakshmi, Goddess of Wealth. Goddess Lakshmi resides in this shankh. This shankh is thus the symbol of fortune and wealth. Keeping this shankha or placing it at home, office, mandir, temple, cash box locker gives good fortunes, money, good luck and prosperity. The exceptional power of this shankha removes economic problems and brings happiness and peace. The Lakshmi Conch is said to bring all manner of blessing, but particularly material wealth, upon the owner. Ritual use may include bathing deities, drinking from the conch, or the use of mantras oriented to goddess Lakshmi. It is a wonderful object for Vastu purpose giving high positive energy.

Where to buy: 

Since dakshinavarty shankh’s are rare, it is difficult to get these from market place; and even if you get, it is difficult to ascertain if these are original.  One thing we have observed that many shankh dealers try to cover the defects in shankh with cement like powder and sell it.  Shank’s of such type should be avoided.

Natural and original dakshinavarty shankh’s can be purchased from DivineTemples Dakshinavarty Shankhs.

      You can place any number of shanks in your home.But the result is unknown.Because some shank sellers are saying that Mahalashmy lives in the shank. Nobody can prove it in india this.The shanks are getting from the sea shore free of cost .But collectors from sea shore get maximum 200 Rupees for

      750 gram shank.The sellers are selling it for Rs 500 to 10000.The sellers are advertising that Mahalashmy dwells in the shank.In this ultra modern age who believe this?Certain non educated people’s only believe this.
