Maha Shivarathri is celebrated in this Temple with much fanfare.
Uthiratadhi starrers pray seeking solutions to their problems. Devotees seek the blessings of Lord for relief from debt burdens and child boon and prosperity. People perform special abishek, archanas and Homas and offer Sweet Pudding with cashews, grapes, honey and Badam as Nivedhana to Lord and Mother and distribute it to poor. Hence the starrers are advised to visit the temple as often as they can or at least on their annual star day. As Agni worshipped here, those suffering from heat related diseases worship here.
