After having darshan of Sri Rama-Lakshmana-Sita-Anjaneya, worship Sankaranarayanaswamy, bow down to Dattatreya Swamy and enter the Shirdi Sai Mandapam by ringing the temple bell. Worship the charming idol of Shirdi Sai Baba brought from Shirdi. After prayerfully worshipping at the Guru Mandapam of Paramahamsa Yogananda, Durga Mandapam and Sastha Mandapam, light an“Elluthiri” lamp in front of Lord Ayyappa to ward off the malefic effects of Lord Saneeshwara.

After offering respects at the mandapam where the worship items used by Babaji during
