Visited this place as it's been our long time wish. A temple located in a peaceful mountainous area. Refer to the timings on temple website to avoid waiting in long queues. Q up at 4pm outside temple and get the morning glimpse and blessings of devi. Don't forget to collect the prasadam in the evening called kashayam..for which booking needs... More

I am a regualr visitor from 1991 onwards. Now i use to go to this temple preferably everymonth by travelling about 900kms. One should know that while going to this temple, initially you have to go to Souparnika, take bath at river, then start with prayers to Lord Vighneswara near the Souparnika. Afterwards you may go to Sree Mookambika Temple.... More

We took a detour from the NH after Kundapur to Kollur and out at Byndoor to continue our journey. The extra one hour something was so soothing... the drive was great, plenty of turns, but the road was good and the feeling was great when we entered the temple. No queue, no rush... it was a quick darshan. Goddess Parvati... More

A very old temple dedicated to Goddess Mookambigai Devi, avatar of Parvati Devi. On a hill, the drive to the temple itself is beautiful. Temple is on the banks of a river. The idol of the goddess is said to be 1200 years old and very powerful, installed and built by Adi Sankara. The temple reflects kerala architecture.

As you view the temple before you go in, you see this rather unassuming structure resting against a backdrop of kudajadri. We visited during the beginning of monsoons - being an "off-season" ( yup, apparently seasonality effects Gods' too) and hence the crowd was very less. We had a delightful time within the temple premises. Literature claims that the "Shakti"... More

Although the place was overcrowded that temple premises were kept very clean. Don't visit this place between Friday-Tuesday, try any other days if you want to avoid the crowd.
