MOOKAMBIKAI KOIL KOLLUR

ANTIQUITY 

Among the countless treatises embodying a great deal of corpus of this shrine, Skandapurana takes precedence. The Kolapura Mahatyam an integral part of Skandapurana envisages a glorious aithihyam of this Muktidham in all its details - origin, sthapakas, palakas, aradhakas etc. And a reverent reading lifts the adorers of every denomination. Venerable Vedavyasa grows eloquent over the description of Parasakti - the presiding deity of this Kshetra and the region. In its primeval state, it was called Maharanyam - a thick overgrowth of wide green forest, infested with wild animals, making it inaccessible to humans, but was deemed a god-gifted, sublime, sequestered haven for highly evolved souls, congenial to doing uninterrrupted meditation and penance. Once when Maharshi Kola chanced to ramble through this enchanting forest region, to his good fortune, he found a self - manifested lingam on the banks of Souparnika, flowing majestically through this virgin forest.Considering it as a gift of the Omni - compassionate Bhaktavashankar, he adored it with due rituals for long. Maheswar, pleased with his spiritual ardour of high order, appeared before him and gave what all his pious heart longed for. He lived there as a carefree tapasvi unhindered by any, and it was then named after him - Kolapuram.
