The afternoon worship session is the same as usual. After the presentation of the mahanaivedya, meals are served to the priests. In the sabliamandap a special throne-like seat known as the 'makhar is erected. This makhar is a miniature pavilion, the chief components of which are the cusped arches and cypress pillars.

For this also, persons well-versed in the art of performing kirtans attend in large numbers. Then at eight the palanquin procession is taken out in great pomp.

The rest of the programme except the evening janmotsava is repeated on the third day also. However, on this day the evening procession is much bigger and more colourful than usual.
