It is an accepted practice that every deity that is brought to the festival visits Madho Rai temple first to pay obeisance to Lord Vishnu.
During all these festivities, it is said that Rishi Kamru Nag (local god of rains), the presiding deity of the Maha Shivaratri, after paying his regards to Madho Rai, moves to the Tarna mata temple at the top of the Tarna hill from where he watches the proceedings of the fair for next seven days.
All the deities are decorated with glittering embroidered clothing and gold ornaments.
After visiting Madho Rai they then proceed to the palace in a colourful procession called the Shoba Yatra, known locally as "Zaleb" to honour the ruler Mado Rai.
It is said that Madho Rai comes out of his temple only once a year on the Shivaratri day and leads the Shoba Yatra.
Mado Rai thereafter pay his regards to Lord Shiva at the Bhootnath temple where the main festival of Shivaratri is held.
