The routine worship is offered at three times a day. Each puja is an elaborate shodasopachari offered with Mahanaivedya and abhisheka. The Peshwas of those days donated lavishly and endowed it munificently with several types of gifts for carrying on the pujas and festivals on a grand scale with unusual splendour too. The successor governments have honoured the Sanads without alteration, hence the celebration with all fanfare due. With the offering of Sheja-arati at about ten O' clock in the night; the silver mask, a substitute for Lord Siva is put to bed in the hall of mirrors, built by Sardar Vinchurkar; a very grand gift beautified with enchanting adornments. The music and alankara at every session is quite enticing that offers a feast to ears, eyes and soul. Of the periodical festivals, Kushavartha snana is a grand affair. Every Monday, the Lord is taken to Kushavartha Thirtha in a palanquin to the accompaniment of music. The ceremonial bath is offered with several rituals, and after it the deity returns to the temple. During Dasara, Diwali, Sivaratri, Karthika pournami etc. several thousands of people from all parts of India congregate and lustily participate spending huge amounts on illumination, feeding and prayers.
