How the Kollur Mookambika got that name? | The temple architecture and Mookambika idol details

How the Kollur Mookambika got that name? | The temple architecture and Mookambika idol details

Kollue MookambikaThis temple has a history for its origin.  In Kritayugam there was a demon Kamasura in this place.  He did penance to please Lord Shiva.  Goddess Parvathi  made him dumb to prevent him from asking boons.  Later she killed him on Jesta sukla ashtami on the Kodachadri hill.  So the Goddess is called Mookambika.

Kollur Mookambika temple is built in the Kerala architecture style.  There is a 20 feet Deepa sthambam at the entrance.  Gaja sthambam which has golden plating is a little shorter.  Devotees have the darshan of these stambhas and then enter the sanctum sanctorium.  Male devotees have to take off their vests and shirts before entering the temple.  Mookambika Devi appears in a cross-legged position.  Mookambika has four hands, with the chakram and sankham in the upper hands.

The idol of Goddess Mookambika was installed along with the Srichakram by Adisankaracharya.  Adisankaracharya peetham is at the west side of the sanctum sanctorum.  Earlier Devi appeared ferocious.  Adisankaracharya did penance and make her tranquil.  Adisankaracharya went to north India with the permission of the Goddess, it is said.  All the kings who ruled this place worshipped and developed this religious place.

A Jyothirlingam is present in front of the idol of Mookambika.  This lingam is divided unequally by the line.  Devotees believe that the small portion of the lingam is the place of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva; the big portion is the place for Saraswati, Mahalakshmi and Mahakali.  Decorations and Pujas are held for the idol and Abhishekam to the Lingam.

The temple at Melkote belongs to 11th or 12th centuries.  Bhagawadramanujam stayed here for 12 years when the Chola king Krimitantudu was torturing the people.  He restored the Melkote temple with the help of King Vishuvardhana.  Ramanujam re-installed the utsavamurthulu which were with Delhi Nawab.  The idol in this temple appears as a 14, 15 years handsome boy.  Goddess Lakshmi is called Yadugiri nachiyar.  Lord Narsimha swamy temple is situated on a temple here.  Brahmotasavam and Vairmudi festival are the important festivals here.

The river Sowparnika which flow in the sanctuary of Mookambika descend from Kodachadri hills with less depth. There are two more streams called Bhrungisha and Pippalada join the river Sowparnika.

There is a historical story pertaining the name of river which says that Suparna (Garuda) did a penance on the banks of this river praying to the Goddess for the salvation of his mother Vinutha’s sorrows. When the Goddess appeared before him, he prayed for her and she satisfied his wish and from then henceforth the river is known after him as Suparna and therefore came to be called as Sowparnika. The location where the Garuda did penance there is a small cave even today which is known as “Garuda’s Cave” which can be visited by the pilgrims.

The flow of the river contains a number of medicinal plants and roots through which the skin diseases can be cured by taking a bath in this river.

There is a historical belief that some of the valuable medicinal roots have been on the hill when Lord Hanuman used to take Sanjeevani Hill in order to recover Lord Lakshmana during the war with Ravana Brahma. The river joins in the Ocean at a place called Maravante.
