The Brahmothsavams begin with Ankurarpana a religious ritual on the occasion of the feast followed by Dhwajarohana in which Dhwaja Patam (a white flag) marked with the Nandi symbol is hoisted on the Dhwajasthambha of the temple. It is said that Dhwajarohana is the significant event of the beginning of the Brahmothsavams to invite all Devatas.

The Vahana Sevas are another important event of the celebrations in which the procession God and Goddess took place in various Vahanas. On the day of Mahasivarathri at midnight during Lingodbhavakalam Abhishekam will be presented to God Mallikarjuna Swamy in a religious manner.

The Radhothsavam will begin the day after Mahasivaratri in the evening. A huge number of devotees will participate in the Car festival. The celebration ends with Dhwajavarohana in which the Dhwaja Patakam (flag) is removed from the Dhwajasthambham.
