The  ’Nemotsava’ of Raktheshwri and Parivara Daivas was also held with much fanfare and grandeur as part of the five-day religious festivities at the Enmakaje Beedina Mane, once the residence of Village Head.

The Nemotsava is performed in the first week of March every year under the headship of Enmakaje Vishwanath Rai who represents the entire clan at all functions and religious ceremonies. Nemotsava became an annual event in 2004, when the temple, which was destroyed in a fire in 1994, was reconstructed under the support of Mr.Sudhir Shetty and his family members. During the course of the five-day event, meals and refreshments are served to the guests and local people.

Since times immemorial, Daivas of Enmakaje used to be worshipped by many Daiva Banas in  Yenmakaje and Bedrampalla in Kumbla-Perla road. This used to be followed by  Bedrampalla cock fighting and  fair for five days and was  one of the major festivals of the region. However, things were not the same for a few decades owing to rules and regulations of the administration.

Villagers are now immensely happy that the Pilichamundi and Parivara Daiva Nemotsava being held every year in grandeur. Thanks to Sudhir Shetty and family.
