On the day, Jamara, sprouts of barley or maize seeds that are considered sacred and worn behind the ears by people as blessings of the goddess during Dashain festival and duck eggs are offered. Billy goats and roosters are also sacrificed at the temple.

According to age-old traditions, on the day, devotees who have observed fast with five, seven and 18 lit butter lamps on their body crawl up to the temple, and perform a puja. One's wishes are believed to be realized by performing a puja at the temple.
