dividerSome Special Festivals

  • On every Sunday, there is Palakhi procession of Shri Mahalasa at 5.45 p.m.
  • On every Panchami, there is Palakhi procession of Shri Santeri at 5.45 p.m.
  • On every Ekadashi day Shri Vithobalankar Pooja is offered to Shri Mahalasa.
  • If any Sunday or any Panchami falls on a day of any special Vahanotsava, the Palakhi Utsava is replaced by that Vahanotsava.
  • If a Sunday and a Panchami falls on the same day, the Palakhi procession of Shri Santeri leaves out first.
  • Shri Mahalasa Palakhi leaves later so as to join Shri Santeri Palakhi when it arrives in front of Shri Mahalasa Temple. The joint procession proceeds further till Shri Santeri Palakhi completes its round at that temple. Thereafter Shri Mahalasa Palakhi proceeds further on its round. This is a rare exciting memorable occasion to witness.
