The Day at the Temple starts with the Loud Ringing of the Bell at Sharp 3am by the Pujaris (Archakas) of the Temple. We (Priests) then open the Door of the Inner Temple and start the Daily Schedule by Performing Kakada Aarti to Lord Datta and Chintamani Ganapati. During the Aarti large drums in the Drum house (Nagarkhana) are Drummed loudly. This is Known as Chaughada (Holy Drumming Ritual).
Devotees are allowed for the Darshana right from Kakada Aarti only. At First Rudrabhisheka and Pooja will be done to the Shaligramas, Spatika and Bana Lingas. Then Special Pooja along with Kesara Lepana will be done to the Swami Maharajs Nirguna Padukas.During this time Devotees get the Darshan of Ek Mukhi Roopa of Lord Datta. After offering Mangalarati to the Nirguna Padukas, there will be Worship of Chintamani Ganapati and other deities surrounding the Temple. The Pooja (Worship) continues till 7am when the Maha Mangalarati Aarti is done to the Lord Datta (Trimurti Roopa) and again there will be Choughada indicating that the Morning Pooja had been Completed.
