  10 day Masi Magam (February-March) Brahmmotsavam is celebrated in a grand manner beginning on the Bharani star day when the Lord visits the sea. Before His arrival at the sea side Perumal travels through a mosque in Thaikal village where a Nawab was placed in rest. The Lord acknowledges the pooja offered at the Mosque area and visits the palace of the Nawab. This is a very strange and secular tradition followed in the festival. 10 day Chithirai (April-May) brahmmotsavam is celebrated with car and boat (Teppam) programmes conducted in Srimushnam itself.

  Realisng their boons, devotees perform abishek to the Lord with white vastras, Tulsi garlands and light ghee lamps. They distribute the Prasad, offered earlier as nivedhana to the Lord to the devotees and also arrange feeding. 
 Greatness Of Temple:

Of the 10 incarnations of Lord Vishnu, Varaha Avatar enjoys special significance.  As the Lord appears so majestically with His two hands on the hips, it is believed that worshipping the Lord in this form shall lead to salvation.  The Vimana (roof tower) of the presiding deity is called Bhavana Vimana.  There is a temple for Kulandai Amman near the northern tower with facilities for the accommodation of the friends of Mother Ambujavalli.

  Temple History:

Lord Sri Narayana chased the demon Hiranysura in Varaha Avatara – in the form of a divine swine with a menacing horn on the nose – killed him and recovered earth stolen by him.  The Lord re-installed the earth on the heads of the divine snake Adisesha as before.  He created the Bothi tree, also called Aswath tree and Tulsi from His two eyes and the Nityapushkarani spring from his sweat.  He chose Srimushnam for Him and graces the devotees in the name of Sri Bhuvaraga.
