Pujas are performed five times a day. On full moon days, Vasanta Navaratri and Saradha Navaratri days, special Navavarna, Kanya and Suvasini pujas are performed.

The Golden Chariot is taken in a procession around the temple on Fridays around 7 pm.

Navaratri is a grand time to visit the temple. Every evening the goddess, dressed in a different alankaram and wearing rare and special jewels, is taken out in a procession.
