Sri Kalahasti

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

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.

Sri kalahasti Temple


  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.

Other than Sree Kalahasthi Temple there are some other Temples exists to perform the Rahu Kethu Dosha Nivarani:

1) Kukee Subramanya Swamy Temple, Subrahamanya Post, Sullia Taluk in Karnataka
2) Trayambakeshwar temple Nashik, Maharastra.

    • Dear Kaveri
      You need to send your time and place of birth also.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Anurag Lahoti
      It is because Rahu kethu pooja is a Dosha Nivarana Pooja done by those who are affected by malefic rahu and kethu. After performing the pooja it is strongly believed / said that one will gain some Spritual Vibrations / Possitive Vibrations in them. If they go straight to their home it reaches home and may negates the negativity at home also. hence said not visit any others home except any temples.
      Also normally if you are visiting any temple you should go back straight only to your house and to any friends and relatives houses but can visit any temples only.
      Om Namah Shivaya

  • Namaste Guruji.

    • Dear Sunil
      You have Anantha Kaala sarpa dosham.
      Hence you are unable to get marry. Even if you get marry you may see troubles in your marital life. So need to properly match for a happy married life.
      Perform rahu kethu pooja on any Tuesdays or on a Sashti thithi raahu kaal time. Or its better to perform Sarpa Samskaarak pooja at Kukke Subrahmanya temple.
      Om Namah Shivaya

        • Dear Sunil
          Performing remedies for once or thinking you have done will give relief. The malefic planets should be pleased for your prayers. Its Anantha Kaala Sarpa dosha so need to continously do prayers and poojas regularly so that only the planets will please. Also dosha has occurred and it takes time to relieve. We need to wait. Do worship regularly is what i can tell you.
          Om Namah Shivaya
