Thanks giving:

   Devotees perform Tirumanjanam and offer vastras (clothing) to Lord and Mother.

Greatness Of Temple:

   The Nava Tirupathis in the Pandya region enjoy equal reputation as the Nava Tirupathis in the Chola region. As Lord Himself performs the functions of the Navagrahas (nine planets), there are no separate shrines for the planets in these temples. Devotees facing adverse effects of planets are advised to visit these Tirupathis and worship the Lord for relief.

Temple History:

   The Twin temples in Tentiruperai are near to each other, hence called Irattai (twin) Tirupati. This is regarded as a single Divya Desam. The temple is situated in a thick forest. There are not much houses here. Devotees are advised to visit the temple after ascertaining the presence of the temple priest there. Nammalvar has rendered 11 Pasurams (verses) in praise of these temples. These two temples are attributed to the shadow planets (chaya grahas) Rahu and Ketu.
