A temple dedicated to goddess Sri Durgaparameshwari is situated in Sowkoor, Kundapur taluk.
This unknown temple is tucked away in the gorgeous hills of the Western Ghats. But the people who have visited vouch for the power of the Devi.
She is believed to be the sister of Kollur Mookambike.
Sowkoor is a tiny town situated about 14kms from Kundapur.
The place is scenic with green thick vegetation all around. Palm, dates, coconut, areca nut, paddy, vanilla, and banana farms add to the charm.
A few yards away from Sowkoor Durgaparameshwari Temple is another shrine, which is in the form of 3 boulders.
Kubja River flows nearby and this river joins Shoorparnika River.
Type of place: Ancient temple
Situated: Kundapur Taluk, Udupi district, Karnataka
Distance: 14 Km from Kundapur
Facilities: Tender coconut available
