As per ancient Scriptures and inscriptions, along with other proofs found in the locality, it is clear that the Kollur Mookambika Temple has been an abode of Devi Shakthi’s worship for centuries. In an ancient inscription (dated 1481 A D) found here, the source of the Shakthi has been described. Shree Mookambika Devi in the form of Linga is the Adi Shakthi, the Creator and the protector of all forms of life.

Many of the local Kings have given lots of donations to this Temple. Prominent among them are the Kings of the “Keladi Dynasty”. They have been offering a variety of worships to the Goddess. Prominent Kings of the Keladi Dynasty, Sankanna Nayaka and Shivappa Nayaka had renovated the Temple and gave donations for the maintenance of the Temple.

As such whenever they would win a war or drive away their enemies they were devoting the victory and celebrating it before the Goddess.

Kodachadri Darshana :

The Kodachadri Mountain ranges are referred to in legends as the Sanjeevini Mountain ranges. Lakshmana loses consciousness in the Ramayana tale, and Anjaneya lifts and carries the Sanjeevini Mountain to revive him. It is reported that a little chunk of the mountain broke off and fell to the ground as he flew swiftly through the sky. The Kodachandri mountain ranges are located on the same section of the mountain. The mountain is said to be covered in medicinal plants, creepers, and roots.

We can witness the Parvatheshwara, Kalabhairava, and Parvathi Devi Temples as well as Ganapathi Cave in Kodachandri. The troll Mookasura had meditated on this gateway. Lord Brahma, pleased by his steadfast meditation, appeared in front of him. To arouse the beast from his meditation, he sprayed water from his vessel, the “kamadala,” across his face. Then, after a period of intense meditation, the monster awoke and drank all of the water from Brahma Deva’s “Kamandala.” While drinking, extra water streamed into the tube like rain and erupted nearby the Ganapathi Cave. The Sowparnika River is thought to have its origins here. We can see the “Sarvanjna Peetha” if we ascend from the Ganapathi Cave.It is a sacred place founded by Shree Shankaracharya. Shree Shankaracharya had performed meditation at this place. Even to this day many sages, saints and Rishis are seen praying at this Peetha to attain the accomplishment or “siddhi”. If any person sits here and prays for at least an hour, he can achieve satisfaction and peace of mind.

A second holy site known as Chitramoola may be seen after ascending from the Sarvajna Peetha and continuing along the alley for about 200 feet. At this location, many sages and saints have attained success. According to legend, Adi Shakaracharya practised meditation here. The sage Kola meditated here, and Lord Shiva was delighted with him and bestowed blessings upon him. Yoga and other religious ceremonies are best performed here because of the environment’s tranquilly. Similar to this, the Chitramoola region has contributed significantly to accomplishments. When we descend the hill from there, we can view Ambavana, a broad forest. The Bhagavathi temple is seen from here. It is said that famous philosophers, ascetics, and brilliant musicians wander around in this area at midnight. Only those achievers, or “siddhi Purushas,” can see them. Bhagavathi Devi and other Goddesses reside at Ambavana. Read more about Sri Mookambika Temple, kollur
