During this festival, offerings will be made to the sacrificial fire both in the morning and evening. The moolava moorthy, utsav moorthi along with His consorts will be decorated with ornaments and flower garlands. After the poornahuti ( the final offering to the sacrificial fire), Perumal and His consorts will be taken out in different vahanas around the area so that He graces people living around the temple.
