The famous shrine of Divine Mother Sri Mookambika at Kollur, about 150 km north-east of Mangalore city in Karnaka State, houses the beautiful idol of Divine Mother. Surrounded by the enchanting and serene Sahya Mountain ranges and dense forests, the temple has been a great center of spiritual splendour from time immemorial. Standing with devotion before the ancient image of Divine Mother, one establishes communion with the Uncaused Cause, the Supreme Mother of all, whatever that is.

The temple is on the valley of the awe-inspiring 5000-peak pyramidal peak Kudajadri covered with dense tropical forests called Ambaavanam, the Gardens of Divine Mother. Kudajadri is a mysterious mountain with several caves where many an ancient Rishi had his adventurous inward journey to Freedom.

From Reviews
The author takes into account both the external and internal aspects of pilgrimage and guides the reader step by step. The internal aspect, viz. the mental preparation of a pilgrim, is a vital factor in any pilgrimage. Pilgrim centers are mainly centers of spiritual power. The primary object of undertaking any pilgrimage mustr be to avil oneself of that power. The author has rightly given this factor due importance. The discussion on the necessity of pilgrimage, the role it plays in life, the greatness of Mother worship, etc. will undoubtedly enable a sincere pilgrim to derive the utmost spiritual benefit from his undertaking. …This is a 'complete' guide in the fullest sense of the term. To Mookambika pilgrims this book is a must, to others, here is a book from which they can know much about pilgrimage.
