This temple is well worth the visit. However, it does get hectic on a Friday and Saturday night, and of course Festivals. But during the normal weekdays, this can be a wonderful place to go for contemplation. A very special place. Do ensure you visit in the evening between 7.30 and 8.00 when they light the tower.

Liked the location of the Hotel. Rooms were clean. Mostly the guests are here for pilgrimage with families. Cant expect much for the price.

Sri Mookambika Temple @ Kollur in Udupi Dist is a favorite destination for starting the Vidhyarambham or initiation to the world of Knowledge (learning). The first written words of the toddler under the guidance of the elders are initiated here at saraswati manadap for ages and the practice would continue for ages to come. Not only young but also who... More

Sri Mookambika Temple was a great spiritual place. Inside the Temple and surroundings are well maintained and people around the temple was helping. The hotels nearby temple was poor in quality. Food served at temple for lunch and dinner. Those who wish a luxury trip its not the place. Temple gives peace of mind

I visit Sri Mookambika Temple, Kollur every year. But every visit is a rare experience. The place is surrounded by hills and a river flowing along. There is no distractions connected with the citylife. A very calm and serene place which fills your heart in the first view. Coming to the temple, this is the only temple dedicated to Goddess...

The temple is the abode of goddess Mookambika and Sowparnika is a holy river. With all due respect, it is about time the temple management and the town stopped treating it like the local drain. The once beautiful river is on the verge of becoming a sewer.
