Kollur is a popular Hindu Pilgrimage center that is located 40 km from Kundapur and approximately 140 km from Mangalore. The village is located at the foot of the Western Ghats and is well known for the Shree Mookambika temple, which is important for Shakti worship. It is adjacent to the banks of river Sauparnika, surrounded by thick forest.
There are certain beliefs that are associated with the river Sauparnika. For instance, it is believed that Garuda (Eagle) called Surpana performed penance on its banks and eventually reached salvation hence the rivers name Sauparnika. Apparently, the river absorbs 64 different herbs from different roots, an aspect which makes its waters capable of curing diseases for those who bathe in it. It’s easy getting to Karnataka via road.
