Do’s And Don’ts at Sri Kalahasteeswara Swamy Temple SriKalahasti


Sri kalahasti Temple
Uniqueness of Sri Kalahasteeswara Swamy at Sri Kalahasti Temple

  • The Uniqueness of the Idol at Sree Kalahasthi Temple is that Lord Siva manifested here having all the 27 Nakshatras (stars) and 9 Rashis in his Kavacham.
  • Sri Kalahasti temple is the only temple that is kept open during Grahanam (Solar and Lunar Eclipse) also.
  • Even Priests don’t touch the Sivalingam here with hands.


  1. Do not visit Friends and Relatives houses on the way back to your home after Rahu Ketu Pooja or any other pooja.
  2. Pregnant ladies should not perform the Dosha Nivarana poojas in the temple.  Also avoid visiting temple where Dosha Nivarani Poojas are performed.
  3. Do not offer Sastanga Namaskara in any Naga Devatha temple.
  4. Do not visit the Temple with oiled hair.


  1. Take a head bath before performing the pooja.
  2. Females should perform the pooja before or after eight days of Menstruation.

Note: Performing eight consecutive Tuesdays worship of Naga Devathas by offering a Clay lamp flamed with Gingelly oil and on the 9th Tuesday performs Naga Dosha pooja at any temple gives good result for those who suffer with Naga / Sarpa Dosha.

  • Consult a good Astrologer who is experienced in Astrological Science.
  • Ask the Astrologer which day would be auspicious to perform the pooja according to my Janma akshathra and for the Problem, for eg – Financial Problems, Marital status problems, No Baby problem, Jobless etc.

Good result can be obtained if Rahu Ketu Sarpa Dosha Nivarani pooja is performed twice in a year. It should be once during the Dakshinayanam (July 15th to Jan 15th, the night time for the Celestials) & once in Uttarayanam (Jan 15th to July 15th, the day time for the Celestials). Perform Rudhra Abhishekam after finishing the Rahu Kethu Sarpa Dosha Nivarani Pooja.
Those who are uncomfortable or unable to perform rituals such as homas and japas, they can do this Rahu Ketu pooja which does not consists any Homa to be held but simply a thirty to forty minutes Manthroccharana (reciting Manthras) with flowers for two Naga (snake) Hoods before the deities of Rahu and Kethu regularly.
Perform the Rahu Kethu Pooja on an auspicious Muhurtham or on your Janma Nakshathra or normal good Nakshathra (stars) / lunar day.
Donating regional Cows (no to money), Naga Abharana (normally decorated on the Shiva Linga) also give good result. These are not compulsory but according to your financial position you may or may not. If done, it’s good.

    • Dear Kruthika
      You have Naaga Dosham a low Mangal / Kujha dosham.
      Remedies –
      Perform Rahu kethu pooja. First offer a simple Ganesha pooja and then do the rahu kethu pooja.
      Kumbha vivha is advisable for you to do to reduce the malefic Mars or Just perform Swayamvara Parvathi vrath pooja. This pooja will remove all the obstacles for your marriage.
      Also you may have some expectation about the boy and might it be the reason for the delay. Normally Leo ascendents will expect high and hence in delay also.
      Your expected date of marriage is 35 apprx since the placements of the planets changes it may differs. To know the exact need to go in deep astrol readings. Also if your state of mind changes due to any bodys advice also you may get marry.
      Namah Shivaya

  3. i and my fiancee don’t have rajju porutham… but we are in love each other… is there any remedy in sri kalahasthi?

    • Dear Revathi
      Rajju Poruttham is the most important factor considered in match making. It tells about the longevity of the husband. Rajju represents the mangal sutra tied and denotes the mangalya bala or strength.Rajju dosham occurs when the birthstars of the man and the woman show the same Rajju. Rajju should be different for both the man and woman.
      Your union is not recommended having such dosham.
      We need check whether both of you rasi adhipathi are friends or not. If your adhipathis are friends you can proceed to marry.
      No remedies for this dosha at Kalahasthi. You send both of your place time and date of birth and we will check and give you report.
      Namah Shivaya

        • Dear Jayalakshmi
          Rahu is malefic in your chart.
          You are not manglik.
          Union is not recommended due to the presence of Nadi Maha Dosha.
          Remedies for you –
          Do kaala sarpa dosha pooja three tmes sashti thithi (soora samhara sashti thithi that falls in the month of 25th October 17 and check date for 18 & 19). First do a simple Ganesha pooja and then proceed to the parihara sthala for Rahu kethu pooja.
          Also place a Kesariya Ganapathy idol in your pooja and worship him by reciting any of his naama manthra for 108 times daily – dont leave this procedure except during 8 days of your periods.
          Boys astro readings –
          Rahu in 1st house and Kethu in 7th house is in auspicious. So he has to do the rahu kethu pooja. So marrying such boy is not recommended also.
          Rajalakshmi – dont get marry before the age of 25yrs.
          You favourable rasi – Libra and Scorpio.
          Regular, sincere and ardent prayers and worship only can save you from pains, worries and obstacles.
          Namah Shivaya.

  4. Dear Swami,

    I want to Know if any Doshas, Marriage status and Job career ( Can I get Govt. jobs).
    And I m palning to do Rahu Kotu Pooha at SriKalahasti after visiting Tirumala on Sunday (i.e. 30.04.2017). Pls suggest good timings to do this pooja as per my Birth Detiles below.

    Name :C Kalyan ( But in certificates C Kalyan Babu )
    DOB : 29.04.1990
    Timing : 18.14
    Nakshtram : Mrugasira

    Thanks and Regards

    • Dear Kalyan
      You can do the rahu kethu pooja on 01.05.17 Monday rahu kalam time which is a Panchami thithi is good to do this pooja.
      First do archana to Lord Ganesha in the temple premises near the Rs 1500 ticket place. Then go to do the rahu kethu pooja. This is must.
      You need not buy any thing for the pooja as you are given the required pooja samagri for the pooja. Dont buy anything from outside the temple touts.
      God Bless you
      Namah Shivaya

      • Dear Swami,

        Thank you for your valuable guidelines.
        And pls comment on Doshas, Marriage status and Govt. job career.
        and also I’m not afford to do Rs.1500/- pooja, really is it Necessary.? any alternatives ?

        Thanks and Regards
        Kalyan C

        • Dear Kalyan
          Doing rahu kethu pooja in a temple is suggestible. So do the pooja for once in a temple. There are rs 350 and 750 tickets are also there in Sri Kalahasthi and in Kukke also lower tickets are there.
          OR you can do as below at your home –
          Daily worship Lord Ganesha (any naama manthra for 108 times), Subrahmanya (skhandha sashti kavacham) and Hanuman (hanuman chaleesha and any rama bhajanas). This is must to get protection against the malefic planet since Subrahmanya is the lord of Rahu and Hanuman who also controls any sort of malefic planets.
          With out your birth details how can we give details about dosha and remedies and we do not give details about careet – govt etc,.
          Namah Shivaya

      • Dear Swami,

        Thank you so much for Guidelines.

        And pls comment also on Doshas, Marriage status, and Govt, job career.
        And I listen before Rahu Ketu Pooja , First have to Abhishek with Milk to the RUDRA PADAS.

        1.Pls suggest me which one I have to do first ( Archana to Ganapthi or RUDRA PADA abhiskem).
        2. Ganapathi Means PATHALA GANAPATHI ???

        Thanks and Regards
        Kalyan C

        • Dear Kalyan C
          First perform archana or simple pooja to Lord Ganesha and then you may go to perform Rudhra Abhishekam and then to rahu kethu pooja.
          Any where in Pathala Ganapathy or another small shrine inside the main temple. At Pathala Ganapathy there is no priest to perform archana or pooja for you, but inside the main temple there is a priest to perform archana. So choice is yours.
          Namah Shivaya

          • Dear Swami ,

            • Dear Kalyan C
              You Shankhpal Kaala Sarpa Dosha. Do rahu kethu pooja on a non fasting day like Shashti, Panchami, Aslesha nakshethra thithi and during the rahu kalam time. As i said do this rahu kethu pooja on a non fasting thithi.
              Possible effects – this dosha may leads to create ill health of your mother, problems in your job / professional ends. Check about vaasthu of you house where you live with an expoert because this dosha also pushes you to live in a vaasthu dosha house.
