  Devotees pray for family prosperity, high farm yields, for sincerity to their employers.
Thanks giving:
  Devotees offer sweet pudding (Sarkarai Pongal in Tamil) as nivedhana to Lord. 
 Greatness Of Temple:
  Lord Lakshmi Narayana graces the devotees with His consorts Sridevi and Bhoodevi in a standing posture.  Many years ago, devotees decided to build a separate shrine for Sri Anjaneya.  According to local history, Lord appeared in the dream of a devotee and directed that His devotee Sri Anjaneya be installed in the sanctum sanctorum itself close to Him.  Accordingly, Sri Anjaneya was installed.  The choice devotee of Lord can be worshipped together with presiding Lord.  He is shorter in height than the feet of the Lord.  Special pujas are dedicated to Sri Anjaneya on Hanuman Jayanthi.  As He is the disciple of Sun, devotees offer on Sundays garlands of Vada-a popular dish of Tamil Nadu.
Patients suffering from incurable diseases and acute stomach pain pray to Lord with a towel on their birth star days.  This towel is tied around the Lord and Tirumanjanam is performed.  The wet cloth is returned to the devotee.  He/she takes it home, uses it as a bedspread and sleep on the piece of cloth.  They are relieved of the ailments, it is said.  A fee is charged for this Tirumanjanam.
As agriculture is the main occupation of the people of this place, they place the paddy seeds at the feet of the Lord before sowing.   They also place the sticks they carry for security at the feet of the Lord, perform Sahasranama archana and take them back.  This is known as Kambu-stick prarthana-worship. Women facing delays in marriage worship Lord and men worship Mother Sridevi with garlands for realizing the wedding wish.  For solution regarding land disputes, they pray to Mother Bhoodevi with Kumkum archanas.
The temple is situated on the eastern bank of Surabi River.  Following the tradition in Lord Guruvayur Temple, sandal paste is offered as Prasad in Lord Lakshmi Narayana temple also.   On the Krishna Jayanthi day, Lord is dressed as child Krishna followed by pujas.  He comes in procession with a butter pot.  As Lord is all prominent in the temple, there are no shrines for sub-deities-Parivara Devadas except for Garuda Bhagwan opposite the shrine of Lord.   Lord Shiva-Shivalinga and Nagar are under the Magizham tree in the prakara.. Special pujas and homas are performed on Jupitr and Saturn transition days for the welfare of humanity as a whole.  Chitra Poornima festival is fully dedicated to Lord.  He comes in procession on a horse vahan.  Magizha tree though traditionally attributed to Lord Shiva, is also the holy tree of this temple.
  Temple History:
  In days of yore, Lord Vishnu devotees of this place built a Perumal temple on the banks of Surabi River as Sri Ranganatha in Srirangam.  The temple was damaged by foreign invaders.  The region then came under the rule of Chera kings.  Lord Perumal with His consorts Sridevi and Bhoodevi appeared in the dream of the king directing him to build a temple here.  The king built this temple with an idol resembling Lord Guruvayurappa and the two mothers.  Lord appearing as Child Kannan in Guruvayur, appears here with His consorts.  Lord Vishnu with Mother Mahalakshmi is worshipped as Lakshmi Narayana.  As Mahalakshmi is the main mother goddess here, He is praised as Lakshmi Narayana.
