. The worship of goddess Muthyalamma is same as that of Goddess Poleramma. In the jatara for Muthyalamma a temporary clay image is used to represent the goddess. This is afterwards left to be crushed underfoot. At this time the goddess is worshipped in order to bring rain. Three buffaloes, sheep, goats, and chickens are offered. If more than one buffalo is offered the one first slain is the real buffalo sacrifice. The remaining buffaloes are given by individuals in payment of vows. The one main buffalo sacrifice, in which the head is placed before the idol, is an essential part of a jatara. This sacrifice is meant for the entire village. Other offerings are considered as optional.
