Had been to this temple in May. Too many tourists waiting in queue. Was not able to see the diety properly as the guards were constantly pushing everyone ahead.

The temple complex is not very large, but the peaceful feeling that one gets from visiting the place is worth the visit. The temple architecture is very typical. The deepa sthambham in front of the temple is unique. One unique prasadam at this temple is the "Kashayam" that is offered to the Devi and given to devotees at about 8:45... More

Enroute we had breakfeast at a resturant called Janardhan - food was ok, buns was excellent. When we reached the temple there was quite a bit of crowd. There was a provision to have quick darshan by paying Rs.100... More

The ultimate place to provide Vidyarambam for your child. Do not buy any flower tali's or garlands from outside the temple, they are not allowed inside.

This was our third visit to Mookambika this time and in the last two visits we came here for the "Vidyarambam" of our kids (Vidyarambam is performed between 6:45 am to 1:00 pm on every day). Sri Mookambika is unique and embodies the powers of Mahalaxmi, Mahasaraswathi and Mahakali combined into one as Adiparashakthi in the form of Jyotir-Linga incorporating... More
