Utsavam

Every year, on the Punnartham Nakshatram , in the Kumbha Masam (Feb – March), we see the temple flag flying high announcing the arrival of Utsavam - the temple festival. Utsavam starts with 'Aanayottam' (Elephant Running around the temple for a specific number of times - usually 21). After this, in the late night, Kodiyettam - festival flag is hoisted. The flag post is made of arecanut wood. Sri Hanuman adorns the flag post. This festival extends for 8 days.

Rituals

Priority is given to traditional Rituals and othere in-house temple rituals than the outdoor activities. This temple has been hosting rare rituals for centuries like Murajapam, Kalampattu, Theeyattu, Kundahomam and so on.

Other Activites

Every morning, Seeveli will be held inside the temple accompanied by Panchari Melam. Temple Arts like Kathakali, Oattanthullal and Chakyaarkoothu will take place during the festival days. Also, Thayambaka by famous Chenda specialists will take place at night. The day before Palli Vetta will be 'Utsava Bali' - the ritual in which all lords would be given special offerings. This is a very special ritual.

On the Palli Vetta day, the temple is engulfed in full grandeur and the pilgrims swarm the temple to be bestowed with the blessings of the lord. Palli Vetta represents the Hunting of Lord SreeRamaswamy. With the Aarratttu, holy bath the festivities come to an end.
