The daily worship is offered at three times. The first one awakens the gods in the early morning and ends with arati. The second one-the afternoon worship is offered with elaborate rituals called Shodasopachari and the evening one goes on till late in the night and closes with arati. The strange custom of offering haldi to the gods is prevalent here and every visitor invariably buys a packet available in the shops and offers to every god enshrined in several niches and mini-shrines. As every one brings and offers, one sees the entire ground is yellow in colour and the orthodox visitor feels it irksome to tread on the ground freely. More than camphor used in almost all places of worship, the offering turmeric powder called Haldi is very common. A unique feature no where practised in India. The annual festivals and utsavas are very colourful and they are celebrated with great fanfare. Chaitra, Shravana, Pausha and Magha masas attract thousands of devotees. Vijayadasami, Somanath Amavasyas are grand affairs, but the grander occasions are the birth days of Khandaoba and Mhlasa and their wedding days. The grandest ones are those when palanquin processions and fairs are held. The whole hills then turn themselves into Bhuloka Kailasa. Visit them! Enjoy the spectacles of the Lord's glory!! And be emancipated!!!
