Many locals used to stop here while on their way to down south. People coming various parts of island pray for the blessing of the god. Some people come to this place and do various special rituals & offerings and beg the god for punishing their enemies. Specially if some one faced a injustice, if there is no other help, they used to come here and grid chilies. This is to request the god to curse party, who has done injustice to them.
