MOOKAMBIKAI KOIL KOLLUR

Enraptured at the destruction of that lokakantaka and convinced with the tearful appeals, she merged into the self manifested Jyothirlingam, which was hitherto being worshipped by Maharshi Kola. Hence the priority in offering prayers to her.

This much - adored Jyothirlinga is divided into two parts by a Swarna rekha - golden line running in the middle, but the left portion is slightly bigger than the right. The left, representing the creative energy principle of the Mother's Sakti aspect is a harmonious blend of Mahakali, Mahalakshmi and Mahasaraswati and the right one standing for Siva's aspect, a happy combination of Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswar represents the conscious static principle. The principle of dynamic creative energy is symbolized by the idol in the female form and the conscious static form is represented by the Linga. The Trio immediately caused building of an imposing shrine befitting the status of MOTHER Mookambika. In course of time, many mini- shrines for the most reverent gods, like Veerabhadra, Gopalakrishna, Partheswaran, Nanjundeswaran, Panchmukha Ganapathy, Anjaneya were built by theist rulers. Another interesting feature the temple has is the using of Souparnika river water for everyday's abhisheka purpose.
