The main festivals are the Brahmotsavam for Lord Dēvanâtha, held every year during the month of Cittirai (April-May), and Sri Desika’s tirunakshatram held during the month of Purattasi (September-October).

Other important utsavams are the Vaikuntha Ekadasi festival during the Margazhi-Tai (December-February) months extending for 30 days, the Masi-Makam (sea bath) at Devanam Pattinam and the Adi Pooram festival.

There is generally some form of utsavam or another year-round in this historic temple.
