Jatra will be held On every Wednesday during Chaitra Month. During the festival, the main deity will be decorated with flower and natural colours, sandal paste, vermillion and leaves. As per the Legend, Mata Sita while on their way back to Ayodhya thought of worshipping Ganesh at his place. She ordered Laxman to fetch some water for Pooja. Laxman went around in search of water but could not find any pool nearby. Laxman then created the water pool by piercing the Earth with his arrow and gathered the water for the Pooja.
