The two-day patosav is observed amidst elaborate rituals and grand festivities on vaishakh shukla ekadashi and dwadasi every year.

According to temple sevayat Kantanath Chaturvedi, on the day of Ekadashi (May 12) devotees get darshans of eight jhankis of Thakurji. The day begins with recitation of Shrimad Bhagavad Gita. It is followed by chanting of vedic mantras and hymns such as Shri Suktam, Purusha Suktam, Vishnu, Gopala and Lakshmi Sahasranams by qualified brahmins. Special pushpa shringaar darshans are given in the evening, amid singing of ‘mangal geet’ by women.

On the following day, that is dwadashi, maha abhishek is performed with panchamrut after the morning mangala aarti. Various vedic rituals are organised throughout the day. In the evening the deities give darshans from the plush and fragrant ‘phool bangla’.

The 4500-year-old Deergh Vishnu Temple is among the oldest of temples in Mathura, belonging to Shri Krishna’s time. The glories of Shri Deergh Vishnu and Padmalayi Mahalakshmi are mentioned in the Vishnu Purana, Varaha Purana, Padma Purana, Garga Samhita as well as in the Shrimad Bhagavata Mahapurana.
