On each day leading up to the grand finale, different floats are led to the Srivari Pushkarini, the divine tank. The idols of the deities are called Utsav Murtis, as they are specially designed to be brought outside the sanctum. The idols are carried around the temple complex through the mada streets, which lie just outside the main building. After circumambulating the tank, the Murtis are mounted on colourfully decorated floats and carried out to the middle of the tank to the Vasantha Mandapam. This Mandapam is a four-pillared structure built in the Pushkarini, where special prayers are held.
