Kollur Mookambika Temple, an important seat of Shakti worship is located in very picturesque surroundings at the foot of the Western Ghats in Kundapur taluk of Udupi district. This sacred place is situated on the banks of river sauparnika and surrounded by thickly wooded hills and has a natural formation resembling the Sri Chakra. Kollur is one of the seven mukti places which were created by Parashurama. It is believed that rishis have performed penance on this holy place. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kollur This shot was taken during the morning prayer procession conducted every day from centuries which is part of the ritual.The secondary idol is taken out for procession thus giving a chance for the devotees to see the idol clear and be close to it & pray.
