Muchur Shri Durgaparameshwari Temple
Shri Durga Parameshwari

Shri Durga Parameshwari

Muchur is a small little village located close to Moodbidri. It is located 6 kms off the Kinnigoli – Moodbidri road. The village is famous for its Durga Parameshwari Temple. The temple is magnificent and large and has been renovated a few years ago.

History: The temple has a very close link to the Nellitheertha Somanatheshwara Temple. Local legend has it that when sage Jabali performed a penance at the Nellitheertha Cave, Lord Durga appeared there and assured him that the demon Arunasura would be killed (at Kateel). She then blessed the region to have three temples in close proximity. Thus the Nellitheertha, Muchur and Kompadavu (Vishnu) temples came into existence.

Main deities: Durga Parameshwari, Ganapati.

Bhutas: Rakteshwari, Jumadi.

Address: Sri Durga Parameshwari Devasthana,
Neerude Post,
Mangalore Taluk,
Dakshina Kannada – 574163.

How to get there: From Mangalore, take the Moodbidri Road, cross Gurupura, Kaikamba and Ganjimatha. Turn left towards Muchur as you near Yedapadavu. Muchur is 8kms from here.
