Kollur Mookambika Temple Pooja Timings- Morning Routine
The temple doors open in the early hours of dawn for Darshan to the devotees. Several ritualistic, daily poojas are performed in the temple by the priests and purohits each day. Not one day goes by when the Mookambika Darshan timings go sparse. There is a heavy rush of devotees flocking the temple each day with an intention to get a glimpse of Mookambika Devi, offer prayers, perform rituals and seek the goddess' blessings.

The doors of kollur Mookambika open at 5 AM and stay open solely for Darshan up to 7:15 AM. Meanwhile, the morning pooja commences at 6:30 AM. After the morning pooja, when the Darshan is halted at 7:15 AM, Danta Dhavan Mangala Aarati is performed. The Dhanta Dhavan Morning Aarthi is a daily ritual at the temple. At 7:30 AM, Panchamrutha Abhishekam is performed which is an Abhisheka ritual of all the deities believed to be residing at Kollur Mookambika temple and is carried out religiously each day. Meanwhile, the Darshan resumes at 7:45 AM and carries on till 11:30 AM. In between, a morning ritualistic Aarti, known as Mangala Aarti is performed at 8:00 AM. At 8:15 AM, the temple gets geared up for the Uday Bali Pooja which also is a daily ritual. The Darshan continues with the devotees ushering in. Around 11:30 AM in the morning, the gates are closed for Darshan as preparations for the afternoon Pooja get started. The temple womb-room gears up for the noon rituals from 11:30 AM. The priests and the Sevaks carry out all the preparations for the noon processions during this time before the rituals can actually get started. The temple is closed for Darshan during this time.

Kollur Temple Timings- Afternoon Routine
The noon religious processions start at Kollur Mookambika temple at around 12:30 PM with the Mahamangala Aarati. A noon Bali pooja is also conducted in the temple around 12:45 PM. Meanwhile, the Darshan for the devotees resumes at 12:00 noon and continues till 12:20 PM. After the Mahamangala Aarati and the Baali pooja at noon, the Darshan continues to be conducted from 12:45 PM. The incessant crowd of bhakts flocks the temple during these hours for Mookambika Devi's Darshan. The doors are closed around 1:30 PM again and the temple retires for some time.

The Mookambika Darshan timings have been adjusted so as to not affect the devotees' routine. This time slot is there to provide a slit in the hectic Darshan schedule. The temple doors open again at 3:00 PM. The Darshan continues further up until 6:00 PM. In these hours, 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM are exclusively reserved for Mookambika Darshan timings only. Although different Sevas are performed all through the day in the name of devotees, no Sevas are carried out during this time. Devotees are allowed inside only for Darshan purposes from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

The Darshan proceeds in a similar way till 6:00 PM. Sevas might be performed from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM. After 6 o clock in the evening, the temple doors are no longer open for devotees who want to seek a Darshan.

The Evening Mookambika Temple Timings
The preparation for the evening aaratis and rituals start around 6:00 PM only. A very grand aarati is performed in the temple premises for goddess Mookambika and all the accompanying deities during the evening. The evening aarati is a grand spectacle to watch and is carried out each day with great fervor and enthusiasm. It is said to be the most important ritual carried out at the temple and is practiced daily.

Before the aarati, a pradosha pooja is performed in the temple premises. The pooja takes place around 6:30 PM. At 7:15 PM, a Thurthu Managala Aarati is performed for the deities. It is followed by a Salam Mangala Aarati at 7:30 PM. At 8:00 PM, a Bali Mangala aarati is performed for the deities. At around 8:45 PM, Kashya Mangala Aarati is performed to please the Goddess and the accompanying deities. This is the final ritual that is performed during a day. After all the aaratis, the temple doors are finally closed at 9:00 PM. No rituals are performed in the temple after that, neither any visitors are entertained for Darshan or other purposes. The Darshan however, does not halt during the Aaratis and devotees can seek Devi Darshan during the four hours stretching from 5 PM to 9 PM except on special and auspicious occasions like festivals and jayantis.

The temple retires for the day at nine o clock in the night before opening again in the morning next day.

The Darshan can be sought any time during the open hours of Kollur Mookambika temple timings again from the next day. The management of the temple is very prudent and efficient in managing the timings of the Darshan. All slots of time allotted for Darshan and Sevas are flexible and can be adjusted according to the needs and requirements of the devotees.

Sevas Performed at Mookambika Temple

Apart from the usual Darshan, many devotees come to Kollur Mookambika to perform a wide variety of rituals and Sevas. The temple is famous for being a Sidhhi Kshetra and it is only fitting that a lot of devotees keep coming to the temple to perform their rituals all through the year. The Mookambika temple timings for all Sevas thus, could get very tight and hectic.

Every day, a number of rituals are performed in the temple premises in the name of devotees from across the country by the priests of the temple. A number of rituals can be performed by the bhakts in the temple at reasonable and viable prices. But the bookings need to be made absolutely in advance for the Sevas to be performed. The Kollur temple timings can get really busy and hence it can be practically impossible to find a free slot or priests to perform the Seva rituals if the time slot has not been pre-booked. To avoid unnecessary inconvenience and undue rush at the last moment, it is advised to make reservations in advance for any kind of Seva or rituals that are to be performed at the temple.

The different rituals that are performed at the temple premises are Chandika Homa, deepastambha lightning, Ganahoma with an offering of twelve coconuts, Navagraha Pooja chandi yagya, and Udayastamana pooja also known as the Golden Chariot amongst many others. These rituals are performed daily for the devotees who need to book the timings in advance and make payments for the rituals.

The rituals are not performed during the exclusive Darshan hours when the gates are solely open for Darshan to the devotees and no rituals or Seva is allowed at that time. The time when this arrangement upholds is usually from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

The rituals can be performed daily though and the exemplary facilities provided by the temple authorities make the performance of Sevas here easy and comfortable. Also, the priests are efficient and willing to spend elaborate amounts of time so the rituals of Sevas can be performed correctly and in fine, minute details. Loads of devotees come here daily and get the Sevas done according to their needs. The Sevas performed vary from day to day. The timings of all Sevas are fixed. There are some Sevas that can only be performed on a certain day like the Friday pooja can only be performed on Fridays.

There are other Sevas that can only be performed with certain constraints of time. The deepstambha lightning Seva is not performed in the temple from the month of June to September. The Nvagraha Poorva Chandi yagya is also not performed from June to September. Same is true of Udayastamana Pooja which cannot be performed between the time from June to September due to religious restraints on their rituals during this time period.

Similarly, the timings of rituals and Sevas vary according to the customs. The timings of the temple for performing rituals differ hugely during the festival seasons. The festivals celebrated at the Kollur Mookambika temple are Mahashivaratri, Navaratri, Dhanurmasa, the Annual temple festival, Ugadi, and Chandika Homam.

It is believed that a Seva performed at the Kollur temple is a thousand times more beneficial than the Seva performed at other places. The power consolidation of the ultimate manifestation of Goddess Durga here makes this place an easy favorite for performing Sevas and rituals.

It is even believed that a Seva performed on auspicious occasions at a sacred place like Kollur Mookambika temple is farther more result bearing and effective. Chandi Homam for example is said to bear instant fruits if performed at the temple during Navaratra. Similarly, other rituals are considered to be more beneficial too when carried out in accordance to the right time and place. This is the primary reason why Kollur Mookambika temple timings need to be changed for auspicious occasions during which the temple premises are overflowing with visitors, devotees, and pilgrims, all wanting to offer their Sevas to the goddess on a propitious day and seeking a Darshan. It often becomes difficult for the temple authorities under such circumstances to control and manipulate the devout crowd. The temple Darshan timings are thus changed to accommodate the need for more slots to perform Sevas and rituals on holy days.
