Sakthiswara shethram, the utsavam lasts for nine days. Begining on the day of karthika nakshatram in the month of kumbam. (february-march), it ends after the kazhchasribali on the nineth day.

Illumination and modest fire-works. This is a speciality of saktheswaram shethram, unlike most of the other kerala temple.All nine days, the place wears a festive look, streets dressed up with arches, festons etc. Houses freshly thatched and painted.Every shrine and bulding is tastefully decorated with lights, plantain trunks, bunches of coconut and arecanuts.
