Learn about the history and mythology behind Sri Mookambika Temple, a Hindu shrine dedicated to the goddess of fertility and love. As the stories go, a demon once harassed various deities at this temple until the goddess Mookambika killed him and restored peace. When you visit, look for a golden sword gifted to the temple by a popular Indian actor. To avoid crowds and join in prayers, visit early in the morning. Remember to dress appropriately--women may want to carry a shawl to wear inside the temple. Sri Mookambika Temple is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Kollur Edition.

  • Serene place. If visiting with parents best to take train as far as possible and then bus. The ghat roads to this place are narrow and there are no double axle buses plying to this place. If you have patience wait till noon during weekdays and enjoy temple food for free.
  • Heavenly atmosphere fully charged with divinity. The presence of the Mother can be felt all over. No words to describe the feeling inside the temple. Must-visit shrine for every devotee of the Mother.
  • The temple is really beautiful. You should reach early in the morning as the queues can get really long. Best time to go is during December. Otherwise it gets really hot and sunny in the summer
  • Nice temple with Good environment. Surrounded by forest and very religious. Car parking is little bit problem.
  • Divine divine and divine. To get the most enchating and truly divine advantages of this mystic place one should please try to know about this place by keeping their ego aside before they land here
