Mangaluru Dasara is celebrated in a very spectacular way,  by worshiping the idols of Ganesha, Adhi Shakthi Maatha, Sharada Maatha, Navadurgas such as Shaila Puthri Maatha, Brahmachaarini Maatha, Chandrakaantha Maatha, Kushmaandini Maatha, Skanda Maatha, Kathyaahini Maatha, Maha Kaali Maatha, Maha Gowri Maatha and Siddhi Dhaathri Maatha.

In addition to idols of Sharada Matha and Maha Ganapati, life-size idols of Nava Durgas are installed in the premises, in an attractive way during Navaratri.  All religious rites are observed for the entire period.  Tableaux form a special part of the festivities and are taken around the main streets of Mangalore.  Idols are then immersed in the well-decorated temple ponds in the presence of devotees.

All these idols are grandly worshipped for nine days of navarathri.  On the tenth day, these idols are taken in the grand procession of Mangalore Dasara throughout the city.  The procession returns to Gokarnanatha Kshethra on the next day morning, where all the above idols are immersed in the lake,  inside the temple premises.
