  Navarathri is the most important festival of the temple. On the first day, they light a lamp made of clay. They spread rice and Nava Dhanyas – nine varieties of corns -. They fill a bronze pot with water and put five betel leaves, arecanut, a copper sheet and a dry date. This is called God Sthapana, which in South we call Aavahana – personifying the deity in a form. This is something like the Gada Sthapana with some variation in our consecration ceremonies. The water is spilled on the earth very carefully. The corns generate within 36 hours. On the first night of the Navarathri, Maratha artists play a drum called Savadha with music. On the seventh day, they dig a square pit, arrange bricks in an aesthetic manner. They put the coconuts brought by the devotees, burn them in small fire fuelled with butter. The ash of the burning is made into a paste. Devotees apply it on their eye brows. On the Dasara day (10th day), the corns grown 6 inches tall are plucked off and offered to the deity. Selected men and women get this plant. Women wear it on the hair while men have them on their turbans.
