Details about Sri Mookambika Devi sent by a sai devotee:

Sri Mookambika (Sri Kollur)

This small, ancient, sacred town is about a four-hour bus ride northeast of Mangalore. The sacred Sauparnika River flows through the town.
Located here is a temple dedicated to the goddesses Maha-Lakshmi, Saraswati, and Durga, combined as Mookambika. Sri Devi

Mookambika destroyed the powerful demon Mookasura. There are several other deities in the temple. There is also a temple dedicated to Lord Krishna here.

Mythology:

Long ago when a demon called Kaumasura obtained a boon from Lord Shiva was reigning pompously, Kodachadri became the hiding place for all the gods and divine beings who became helpless against his harassment.

While the Saptarishis were engaged in prayers and poojas to bring about the end of demon kaumasura, Guru Shukracharya enlightens him about his impending death at the hands of a woman. Learning this, kaumasura performs an austere penance to please Lord Shiva. When Lord pleased with his prayers, appears before him and asks him to name the boon that he wishes, Vagdevi, the Goddess of speech senses that this could lead to a greater devastation and makes him speechless. The dumb Kaumasura then becomes unable to verbalise his wishes and then onwards he is called Mookasura. Soon after, on the request of Kola Rishi, the goddess creates a mystical power by bringing together the individual powers of all the gods who had assembled. This Divine Power wages war on Mookasura and brings about his destruction, thereby granting him salvation. The place where devi killed Mookasura is known as "Marana Katte".
