MOOKAMBIKAI KOIL KOLLUR

THE ARCHAMURTHI

The beautiful idol of MOTHER Mookambika in sitting posture is installed on a pedestal about three feet in height. She reveals herself with three eyes and four hands - two upper hands holding Sankha and Chakra, and the lower two are heightening her glorious farm with Abhaya and Varadha mudras. She is worshipped in Sagunarupa, and receives Sathwika puja only. The life sire idol of the Mother, resplendent with divine charm raises the hands of the devotees at the first sight and fills their souls with bliss. Tradition says that this Panchaloha image was installed by Sri Adi Sankara. And the Jyotirlinga, lying below the pedestal is self-manifested form - Swayambhu and from the twenty eighth Dwapara yuga to the present Manvantara is receiving worship, started with Kola Maharshi. The garbha griha is quite spacious and is opened on three sides. Just below her feet lies the Swayambhu linga representing Sakti and Siva amsas. The nitya and naimithaka pujas offered to the MOTHER are according Saivagamas, introduced by Adi Sankara, when he visited the temple for the first time.
