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.

      Perform Navagraha Dosha Nivarana Pooja in a nearby temple or at Ghati Subrahmanya or Kukke Subrahmanya. But enquire before doing at the mentioned temples as you need to shell a few thousands like near to 5k.
      Or just circumnavigate Navagrahas daily for best result or every Saturdays. Also perform Tila Abhishekam on Saturdays regularly on regular Basis.
      At home daily worship Lord Ganesh and Hanuman.
      You have Kuja dosham and it gets reduced after 28 year. How ever there may be some effect on Profession and financial aspects.
      Also worship Lord Sun god on every sunday during sun rise time.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    Do we have to undergo any fasting or vrisham before darshan in the temple?

    What are the rules that need to be followed after visit to Sri Kalahasti Temple in our way back to home?

    • Dear Mahadevan
      Yes visit Tirumala first and then come to Kalahasthi, do the rahu kethu pooja and then go straight to your home only.
      Observing fast till the completion of the pooja is beneficial and Not mandatory.
      No rules to be followed at temple during the pooja. Wear traditional dress is enought and not compulsory. Just go straight to your home and have a bath wetting the cloths completely and then enter you home is enough and not to maintain beyond this. Just dont eat non-veg for that day only is enough.
      Om Namah Shivaya
