Kollur Mookambika Temple


According to the legends, Lord Parasurama created the land between Gokarna and Kanyakumari. Parasurama donated this land to the Brahmins and settled Brahmins there in 64 gramams or villages. 32 out of the 64 gramams are in between Gokarnam and Perumpuzha and the remaining 32 gramams are in between Perumpuzha and Kanyakumari. Kollur Grama belongs to the first category. After the creation of these gramams, Parasurama had consecrated 108 Shiva temples and 108 Durga temples for the well-being and prosperity of the people in Kerala. It is interesting to note that Kollur Mookambika Temple is included in both 108 Shivalayas and 108 Durgalayas.


Kollur Mookambika Temple is one among the Seven Mukthi Kshetras (sapthamukthi sthala) in South Karnataka. The other six being Gokarna, Udupi, Subramanya, Kumbasi, Kodeshwara and Sankaranarayana.
