Mookambika Temple Kollur

Mookambika Temple at Kollur is a Devi temple and a major regional pilgrimage center in Coastal Karnataka at 35 kms from Kundapura / Maravanthe and about 70 kms from Udupi. It is also visited enroute to Murudeshwar

Mookambika is visited for Vidhyarambha I.e. a ritual performed on small children before they start schooling.

The temple holds immense relevance for the devotees as it is associated with revered Hindu saint and Vedic scholar Adi Shankara. It is believed that Adi Shankara perceived the idea of having a Mookambika Devi temple at Kollur and himself installed the idol of deity in the temple some 1200 years ago.

There is a beautiful waterfall called Arasinagundi, at about 4 kms from temple. This waterfalls is situated at the foot of Kodachadri Hills and is one of most beautiful sights of this area. One has to trek 3 kms to reach this waterfall, which is near Dali village.
