The deity is quite big in size
and wears fierce aspect as it is common with Bali priyas and classed one among
the Kshudra devatas. Prayer services too are quite queer, when compared with
the goddess who take Satwika puja. The star attraction of this temple is the
celebration of quinquinnial festival that attracts lakhs of people Inviting the
deity to preside over the function is made with mud pots filled with water and
chanted margosa stems. Then surfaces the fantastic tradition offering special
prayers by ladies almost naked without outfit, but covering their bodies with
neem garlands, towards redemption of vows taken They march to the temple in
procession to the accompaniment of instrumental music. It is a unique tradition,
no where practised, says the priest. Due to receipt of Mother's abundant grace
with such exotic worship, the number is waxing with the passage of tune. One
more of similar nature practised at Chandragutti village in Karnataka excels this, where men and women visit the temple and offer prayers absolutely naked.
