Went with family during 2nd week of March. It was just before festival started. There was less rush and we had good darshan.

I'm unable to describe about this place/temple/devi in my words. Truly a holy place and the visit will change your life for sure. All facilities for staying and food available near the temple. Just go - balance all will come on way. Hire a jeep and go to Kudachadri Hills also.

However, even the special fee will grant you only a fraction of a second... More

This is a famous Hindu temple in south India, dedicated to Mookambika Devi. Regular bus services are available from Udupi and Mangalore. Many hotels are available around the temple for accommodation. There are many restaurants as well.

I think all Hindus should visit this temple and get Amma Mookambika's Blessings. The temple is so cleanly maintained. After visiting this temple I hear the song from one Tamil movie , Janani .. Janani .. by Maestro Ilayaraja. There are so many good & decent hotels to stay. I am very eager to visit this temple once more although... More

This temple fridge is a scenic ride into the Moogambika reserve forest.The temple is very touching and silent. During my visit this place had less visitors which made the dharshan very peaceful.
