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.

      My son was born on 03/12/2013 at 7:24 pm evening .
      And his nakshara is jyestha nakshatra 3rd padha.
      I visited pandit. He said to perform rahu santhi puja in temple.

  • Dear Sir,

    DOB: Nov 3rd 1990
    Place of Birth: Bangalore.

    which is the ideal day to perform rahu ketu pooja.


  • I have married before three years still I don’t have children, this rahu kethu puja helps me to concive

    • Dear Ujwala
      Need to check who is your Puthra sthana lord – he is posited good or bad, and about presence of any dosha related to Rahu kethu and about your luck etc.
      Just like that not required to do any pooja or if you are interested then you can do rahu kethu pooja no issue on that.
      Yes this also hinders in getting a progeny.
      Om Namah Shivaya.

  • Namaste,

    Would you advise if rahu-ketu parihara pooja needed in Sri Kalahasthi or any other remedy required for person with below birth details?

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    • Dear Divya
      No Kaala sarpa dosham but need to do Rahu kethu pooja as Rahu is placed malefic in his Ayusthana.
      You can also do the Naaga Prathishta at Kukke Subrahmanya or any other ttemple is beneficial.
      Reciting Garuda Manthra for 108 times daily is best to rescue from the Naaga devathas.
      Reciting Guru manthra for 108 times is also is required.
      Om Namah Shivaya

  • Our house is in Kerala.After performing rahukethu pooja in Kalahasthi temple ,can we stay in a hotel and return home next day,as our flight timings are on next day, or is it is better to come back home directly from the temple on the same day after the rahukala pooja.

    • Dear Uma
      You can stay in a hotel for that night and next day after a fresh up in the hotel you can go to your home town or you can go straight to your home town if it is possible for you on the same day also.
      Only thing is that do not go to any temple or any other places.
      You can do the rahu kethu pooja at Rameeshwaram or at Tirunageshwaram, TN also. It is also an ancient temple to do this pooja.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Shankar
      Need time of birth also to check whether you have Kaala sarpa dosh or Naaga dosh etc to confirm or without that simply you can do it. First perform pooja to Pathala Ganapathy while entering the temple, then perform Rudhra Abhishekam and then rahu kethu pooja during raahu kaal time on any Monday.
      And perform Ganapathy Homa or Sathyanarayana vrath pooja at your home.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Manjula
      Yes perform rahu kethu pooja on a 12th Tuesday (Barani nakshathra so preferable) of this month or on 11th Monday that is Sashti thithi raahu kaal time is best time to perform the pooja. But first visit Ganesh temple and perform pooja to the lord and then go to the parihara sthala to do rahu kethu pooja.
      At home daily tell her to worship Lord Ganesh and recite Saraswathi sthuthi. Before starting to read pray the lord and then saraswathi sthuthi thrice and then go ahead is beneficial. Always taking a bath in the morning is must for the girl.
      Visiting Ganesh and Hanuman temple daily or every Wednesday and Saturdays respectively is must.
      Om Namah Shivaya

        • Dear Manjula
          You can have the tirumala prasadh with you as its not a flaw. But first to Tirumala and then to Kalahasthi is must.

        • Dear Srinivas
          You can perform on any Saturday or Sunday or Monday rahu kaalam but Monday is believed more auspicious in general. Thithi such as Sashti, Pournami, Amavasya, Ashlesha Nakshathra day are considered auspicious. Time is raahu kaalam day.
          First perform pooja to Lord Ganesh and then go to do rahu kethu pooja.
          Regular worship of Lord Ganesh, your ishta devata and your family deity.
          Perform water Abhishekam to Lord Shiva Linga on every Monday evening gives better result in family etc and a peaceful life.
          Om Namah Shivaya

  • Namaste Guruji, My name is Prasanth and my dob: 28-10-1989 and my birth time is 12:30 PM. My Zodiac sign – Virgo. Currently, i have problem in my career, as there is no stability in job and finding difficulty in getting a job. I am also facing slight financial problems. I am planning to visit srikalahasti next saturday to perform rahu-kethu and sarpa dosha pooja. Kindly, suggest and need your help guru ji. How my professional career would be?

    • Dear Prasanth
      I do not give prediction about anything but about doshas and its remedies or remedies for obstacles only.
      Yes you can perform Rahu kethu pooja on a Sunday raahu kaalam would be fine. But not mandatory.
      Worship Lord Ganesh daily.
      Presently you are in Jupiter dasa. Jupiter is placed malefic and hence troubles for you.
      So reciting Guru Manthra for 108 times or Guru Sthothram daily or every Thursdays and attending any Guru like Sai Baba or Dhatthathreya during Harathi benefits more. Even you can recite Vishnu Sahasranamavali daily in the morning.
      Circumnavigate Navagrahas on Saturdays.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Monika
      You have Kuja dosham placed in 1st house and hence hindering.
      This year you have marriage yogam. But be careful in matching horoscope and decide.
      Before that perform Kalyanam to Lord Lakshmi Narasimha at Ahobila or Yadagiri temples on a Tuesday.
      Then at worship Lord Ganesh and Subrahmanya – any slokam or Sathanamavali regularly or every Tuesdays. Worship of Lord Hanuman is also most beneficial.
      Do as I said above sincerely to please the lord and soon you may get marry.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Bhagyasri
      Rahu and kethu dosham is there but not that much serious. Marriage happens in delay may be after 28 or 30 years of age.
      Perform Rahu kethu pooja on a Sashti thithi or any Tuesday raahu kaal time.
      Worship Lord Ganesh and Subrahmanya – Subrahmanya Bhujanga sthothram. Also perform Kalyanam to Lord Lakshmi Narasimha at Ahobila or any renowned temple near to you or at Srinivasa Mangapuram Kalyana Venkateshwara temple near Tirupati. This has to be done on a Tuesday. Doing this may remove the hurdles for marriage soon.
      Keep lemon shell lamp on 21 Tuesdays raahu kaal time in a Naaga temple or to Goddess Durgamma.
      Circumnavigate Navagrahas also on Saturdays regularly till you get marry.
      Om Namah Shivaya

  • Respected Guruji,

    Me and wife, are blessed with twin sons after 10 years of marriage. The children are around 8 years now. There are issues with their education etc. An astroleger advised that we do Rahu Ketu pooja in Sri Kala Hasti temple for 27 days ( the days can be split into different slots / batches ). We are from Bangalore. Can we do the puja , continuosly for say 9 days X 3 different occasions or 1 day/ in each month for 27 months. Or say 3 days/ month for 9 months. Is it allowed to do Rahu Ketu puja for more than once? Kindly advice. Thank you a lot in advance. Gopakumar

    • Dear Gopakumar
      Nromally rahu kethu pooja can be done once in every six months or once in a year, and not as like the astrologer said is required.
      Once in every six months is enough.
      Send their birth details and I will tell you.
      Om Namah Shivaya

  • Namaste,

    • Dear Tara
      Don’t worry you will have a child if you follow as I tell below.
      Just worship Lord Ganesh and recite Guru manthra for 108 times daily or every Thursdays and attend Harathi Pooja of Sai Baba on every Thursdays.
      For your husband –
      Has kaala sarpa dosham and hence may be the miscarriage. Need to go for some other analysis also to conclude exactly.
      Remedies –
      Both perform rahu kethu pooja on a Sashti thithi raahu kaal time at Mopi Devi Subrahmanya temple. Here you need to visit the temple day before evening of sashti thithi and sleep for the night and then next day first perform pooja to Lord Ganesh and then during raahu kaal time perform rahu kethu pooja and worship Lord Subrahmanya and make you request. You need to do this pooja thrice atleast or till getting a child but not during your pregnancy.
      You observe fast and or just worship Lord Subrahmanya on 6 or 11 or 21 consecutive sashti thithis. If you could please the lord with your prayers then surely you can concive and get a good child.
      You husband should also perform Navagraha Dosha Niarana Pooja or simple continuously or regularly circumnavigating Navagrahas on every Saturdays is better for his life.
      Perform Ganapathy Homa pooja at your home on an auspicious day consulting a priest.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Shreeranganatha
      Taking a bath after finishing or before entering house is not mandatory but if taken is said to be like a precautionary step that it. So leave it and proceed.
      The day when you do the pooja only need to stay non veg and a fast. From next day you can eat.
      Worship of Lord Ganesh before start of any work or any dosha nivarana pooja like rahu kethu pooja is beneficial and said to be have completeness. If not visited don’t suffer. When you do it next some other day do it on that day.
      Worship Lord Ganesh daily and say the lord done so and to forgive you. He will surely forgive you.

      No worries as it happened on the part of the temple side.
      Next time after six months or one year you perform pooja again but start with a pooja to to Lord Ganesh first and then go the parihara sthala to do the rahu kethu pooja.
      Doing thrice is advisable.

      Your son has Kuja dosham. So need to perform pooja to Lord Vaitheeshwaran.
      And regularly worship Lord Ganesh and Subrahmanya – Subrahmanya Bhujanga sthothram or skandha sashti kavacham daily or every Tuesdays and also Lord Hanuman.
      Yes you can do rahu kethu pooja for well being but not mandatory as rahu is not malefic in his chart.
      Need to recite Guru manthra daily or every Thursdays. Attending sai baba aarathi pooja is beneficial.
      Daughter – no dosham. Yes can perform rahu kethu but not mandatory. Do this pooja on a Tuesday rahu kaalam time but first perform simple pooja to Lord Ganesh and then do rahu kethu pooja for both your son and daughter.
      Daily or regular worship of Lord Ganesh and Hanuman is must. Visiting Hanuman temple is beneficial. Perform Tila abhishekam to Lord Saturn standing sideway to his statue and keeo her hands tied backwards. Do this abhishekam as per your possibility at least once in every six months or yearly.

          Ticket cost – Rs. 500, 1500, 2000 etc.
          Best time to perform rahu kethu pooja is Rahu Kaal time. If you are unable to attend by that time then you perform at any time between 06 am till 06 pm.
          Best days are – Ashlesha Nakshathra day, Sashti, Krishna Paksha Panchami, Pournami, Amavasya thithis. Any Saturday or Sunday or Monday raahu kaal time also you can do.
          If you would like to do it on raahu kaal time then you should reach at least one hour prior to raahu kaal time to buy the ticket as a precaution.
          First visit Pathala Ganapathy temple and worship the lord and then perform rahu kethu pooja. If you scare to get in to the Pathala Ganapathy temple then you can visit one other temple inside the main compound or outside the temple.
          On buying the ticket you will be provided the pooja samagri along with two naaga idols.
          On sitting in the parihara sthala (a hall) that comes right at about 50 feets from the ticket counter.
          It takes nearly 30 to 40 minutes to complete the pooja. One of the person will guide about how to perform the pooja.
          Take a head bath on the day you perform rahu kethu pooja.

  • Shall we visit Sri Kalahasti temple after Tirupati Darshan, Is there any problem in visiting the temple regularly, and is that compulsory to perform Rahu Kettu Pooja in each visit?

    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.
