MOOKAMBIKAI KOIL KOLLUR

THE GLORY OF KUTCHADRI

It lies at about 22 Kms from the temple. The sacred shrine and its surroundings owe their sublimity to the sylvan valley of Kutachadri hills, jutting into the skies seem enjoying eternal communion with the celestial gods above, and are visible for miles around. The awe-inspiring pyramidal peaks beckon the pilgrims to visit them affording tranquility in their caves below for meditation and penance. From time immemorial, this spot served as tapobhumi for several saint - seers and acharyas. For spiritual solace, it is a sure refuge. It is visitation worthy, but vehicles take the yatris only upto Nagodi, lying at 12 Km and the rest of the distance is to be covered by trekking.

There are two temples here - one meant for Satwika Puja - offering fruits and vegetables for Naivedya to Mother Uma, and the other rajas, offering meat etc. to the Goddess Kala Bhairavi. A few - houses are found inhabited by priests, who provide accommodation and food at minimum cost, if yatris desire. There is a cave called Ganapathy Cave, and it takes one to the other end called Ambavana, many miles away.
