One of the famous pilgrimage city in South India, Kollur is located marvelously on the banks of the perennial river Sauparnika and is perfectly placed at the foothills of Kudajadri mountains in western ghats. The small town of Kollur is renowned for the Mookambika temple, a temple dedicated to Goddess Devi, the Goddess of Vidya (the knowledge). Kollur is the place of worship of Shakti.

Legendary tales say that it was Adi Sankaracharya installed the Devi idol at this place. It is believed that Adi Shankaracharya had continuous mediation in Kudajadri hills and Devi appeared before him. Devi agreed to fulfill his wish and he wished that Devi to be placed in a place in Kerala for his worship. Devi agreed but when they reached Kollur, Sankaracharya got a doubt whether Devi is with him. He looked back and then Devi asked him to install her there and worship at that place.

Kollur is believed to be one of the seven pilgrimage destinations established by the sage Parasurama, one of the incarnations of Lord Vishnu. Kollur offers a perfect blend of Hindu religious traditions coupled with modern amenities.

Kollur, a part of the Mookambika wild life sanctuary, is admired as a place with natural scenic attractions. The breathtaking views of the nature and the lusting green landscapes add to the attraction of this holy place. There are many eye catching attractions in this small hamlet. Thousands of tourists and pilgrims throng to this place all through the year.
