Management and worship

The administration and management of the temple belongs to Sri Admaru Matha, Udupi. The traditional and spiritual relationship of the Durgalaya with the Matha is reflected by a custom observed on a night during the Sharannavaratri celebrations. The Swamiji of Sri Admaru Matha brings the Presiding Deity of the Matha to the temple and offers the Mahapuja to Shree Kaliyamardana Krishna Devaru (Presiding Deity of the Matha). The idol of Shree Krishna is then kept in ‘Ekanta’ along with Durgadevi in the Sanctum, symbolizing the Divine union.

The relationship of the Matha with the Durgalaya is also reflected in the patterns of daily worship, rituals and the festivals which are in practice here. The Archakas (Priests), the Keelu Shanti (who prepares the Naivedyam) and the Udaka Shanti (who brings water for worship) strictly follow the purity and fast up to the completion of Mahapuja. Every ritual is offered to the Goddess with the chintanam of Durgaantaryami Lakshmi Narayana.

The pujas and rituals are traditionally performed by the Priests who belong to the two families of the Kunjithayas, in a fortnightly rotation. Priests are enjoined to keep within the temple precincts and observe celibacy when they are in charge of the daily worship.
