Those days there was no power
So Arthi was lit and shown the idol to the people who are in the temple.

The aarti evolved from the worship of fire. Fire in Hinduism cleans and purifies. The aarti is the closing ritual of the prayer. Typically, a piece of camphor or a clay or metal lamp with cotton wicks soaked in oil or ghee is placed on a metal plate along with flowers and incense. The lamp or camphor is then lighted. The plate is rotated in a clockwise direction in front of a picture or statue representing the deity whose blessing is being invoked, accompanied by the ringing of a bell and the chanting of devotional hymns. After the prayer is finished, the plate is then taken to all the gathered worshippers who put their hands over the flame and then touch their eyes.

From what I've found out...Ghee is burnt in the Hindu religious rituals. It is used in marriages and funerals, and for bathing idols during worship. In other religious observances, such as the prayers to Shiva on Maha Shivaratri, ghee is sacrificed along with four other sacred substances: sugar, milk, yogurt and honey. According to the Mahabharata, ghee is the very root of sacrifice by Bhishma.
