On the trip to around mangalore, one of the great temples that is worth a litter further ride is Mookambika temple. This is of divine diety Parvathi and very traditional & amusing temple. Visited this temple after several years, and the divinity is profound.. The kumkum archana is the main feature of this temple, and the surrounding is very peaceful.... More

an hour from Murudeshwar by drive. Ofcourse its meant for the religiously inclined. Its a popular place for many folks in an around and from nearby states Kerala/TamilNadu and hence can get crowded. temple elephants are an attraction for the kids, one can spend very little time near the sanctum sanctorum- as its crowded and you get barely any time...

Vidhyarambham is the occasion of giving children training to write for the first time. The best age is after 2.5, but before 3 years of age. Naturally, Saraswati devi is the best for Vidhyarambham. There will be a line for Kashayam at 08:30 in the evening in front of main entrance. Take a small jar with you.

We visited this Temple on 15/03/2015 This Temple is dedicated to the Goddess Parvati or Shakti, the Consort of Lord Shiva. The Goddess is in the form of a Shvia Linga. Worshipping Her and seeking Her Blessings is a great experience. The Temple is on the banks of the perennial River Souparnika amidst the Forests of the Western Ghats. Sage... More

Every visit of mine to this temple has been always very fruitful. The deity has always blessed me by giving the alankar darshan which is generally done after the morning abhishekam or pooja or evening pooja. I had opportunity to witness the evening abhishekam to the linga of the goddess couple of times. With her blessings I have performed Chandika... More

My first visit...Nice calm place ..best route by train to Mookambika road station and then a van/car trip to the temple premises..you will find plenty of cars waiting at the station. Plenty of lodges /restaurants near temple premise so no issue for boarding. Try and visit on off seasons to get earlier access.. as there a big queues normally.

I visited this temple on 28/1/2015. Here you can see Goddess in three different decorations. Goddess Saraswathi, Goddess Lakshmi and Goddess Parvathi. By night 8.30 P.M. they give a medicinal liquid (Kashayam) as prasadam and it is generally believed that it cures the diseases. Goddess Mookambika herself gave this medicine to Sankaracharya when he felt tired while writing "Soundarya Lahiri... More

On festive occasions, the temple is quite crowded. On other days, darshan is fast and hassle-free. What needs to be improved is that the temple authorities need to guide tourists on how to go about buying the prasad / pooja and get the "kashaya" and "bhojan". A simple notice board giving this information would also suffice.
