The annual festival of the temple is held for 11 days from Uthram to Thiruvonam asterisms in Medom (April-May), the flag-hoisting ceremony being conducted on the Uthram day.   The utsavam offers a pageant of color, music, fine arts and elephant procession to the thousands who throng to witness the event.

The administration of the temple traditionally vested jointly in the Maharajas of Travancore and Cochin and a representative of the local community. It was the Maharaja of Travancore who held supremacy in the setup though the temple was situated in Cochin State. The representative of the Maharaja of Travancore, Tachudaya Kaimal, was the chief executive of the temple administration. With the abolition of the princely order, the Government of Kerala appointed a now Managing Committee with the Tachudaya Kaimal as Chairman to look after the day-to-day administration of the temple.
