KHANDOBA - JEJURI

The daily rites consist of the usual three worships and the two aratis in addition the Ekadashini is performed daily. Of the special occasions, Vijayadashami, the birth-day celebrations of the god on the sixth day of the month of Margashirsha and the marriage ceremony of the god and the goddess on the fourteenth day of the  month of Pausha are the most important. Like the other kshetras on the evening of the Vijayadashami day the god and goddess are placed in a palanquin and are taken out for the crossing of the borders ceremony. Bands of musicians are in attendance, large number of torches and a great amount of Haladi powder give the scene a bizzare aspect.

The birth day celebrations take place mainly in the temple. On that day the Laghurudra takes place and the god is offered a naivedya of sweets prepared from gram-flour. No non-vegetarian naivedya is offered and if any of the devotees is keen on presenting one to the god he has to place it outside the temple walls. But the biggest festival is that of the marriage of the god. Mhalsa is the daughter of one Timmasheti from Nevasa.
