Every day, Sri Saligrama Srinivasa is awakened from His Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) with the chanting of special suprabhata slokas. Following which, a special harati is offered, and public darshan of the Lord is permitted (Viswaroopa Darshanam). After, Archana takes places in ekantam (a private ceremony in which public darshan is not permitted). During this ceremony the Lord’s 108 names are chanted while offerings of tulsi leaves, bilva leaves, lotus flowers, champak flowers, and jasmine flowers are delicately placed at His feet. Following which, Abhishekam (ritual bath) for the Sri Bhoga Srinivas Murthy, a smaller replica of the main deity, takes place with fresh milk. Sri Saligrama Srinivasa is then worshipped with tulsi and sweetly scented flowers while His 1008 names are recited (sahasranama archana). The Lord is subsequently offered a variety of divine food preparations (naivedya) while the naivedya bell is rung. Public darsan (sarva darshanam) is permitted again and only halted during the naivedya offerings and during the midday temple closing time. Public archana can be availaed in Sarva Darsanam times by pilgrims who purchase an archana token. In the evening Ekanta Seva, the Lord is sung a gentle lullaby with an offering of sweetened milk, while he drifts into yoga nidra (yogic sleep) for the night.

Every Thursday, the Pachcha Karpoora Namam (edible camphor tilak) usually covering more than half of the Lords eyes is reduced in size, allowing pilgrims to see the eyes of the Lord directly. This is known as Netra darsanam.

Every Friday, from 9:00 am – 10:00 am, there is an extremely Sacred Abhishekam done for the Main murti of Sri Saligrama Srinivasa, as well as for Sri Padmavati Lakshmi Devi. Also on this day is the Nija Pada Darsanam, during which the golden armor covering the Lords feet is removed, allowing devotees to have direct darshan of His divine padukas (lotus feet).
