During the month of February a 10 day long celebration including the car festival is conducted in the temple. During the festival Lepakshi is packed with pilgrims from all over the country.
Lepakshi Veerabhadra Temple remains open from morning 5.00 AM to 12.30 PM and in the evening from 4.00 PM to 6.30 PM.
The darshan for the devotees is open all days a week. Timings are subjected to change during festivals, important rituals and during grahan (solar and lunar eclipse).
The first puja is dedicated to the Shivalinga and then to Lord Veerabhadra. During morning hours, the lord appears as Bala rupa (youth) and as a hero in a moustache in evening hours.
Devotees perform Abhishek to Lord and Mother and offer vastras. They also offer sweet pudding – sarkarai pongal nivedhana. As in Lord Vishnu temples, here too Sadari blessing with the lotus feet of the Lord is offered to devotees. Betel leaf is the prasad in the temple.
This year festival and puja “MAHA SHIVARATHRI UTSAVALU” schedule will be updated soon.
