At least once a year, the Annakut is organized on the foundation day of the temple.

Shaktipeeths are a very important in context to the pilgrimage for Hindus. These sites hold a mythological importance for the Hindus. It is given in the Hindu mythological texts that Lord Brahma, the creator of the whole universe performed a yajna and asked lady Shakti to help him in creation of the whole universe and lady Shakti from the lord Shiva and helped him in creating the whole universe. It was decided that lady Shakti would be born in human form and take place by lord Shiva’s side as his wife to help him in his role of running this universe efficiently. Lord Brahma’s son performed a yajna to get lady Shakti as his daughter and it was already decided that lady Sati who was lady Shakti in human form would be wed to lord Shiva. But because lord Brahma’s fifth head was cut off by lord Shiva’s curse due to his lie, Daksha who was lord Brahma’s son hated lord Shiva and didn’t want his daughter lady Sati to be wed to him but lady Sati saw lord Shiva and fell in love with him and as result was married to him.
