Ghati Subramanya Swamy Temple History:

The temple is believed to be more than 600 years old. The construction of Ghati Subramanya Temple is attributed to Ghorpade, which belonged to the Sandur Dynasty. It is believed that the deity appeared in the dreams of the king by revealing the location of the idols. The king, with the help of the locals, found the idol of Subramanya Swamy and then ordered the construction of a temple around him.

According to Legends, Ghati is the place where Subramanya Swamy performed penance in the form of a snake. He did penance in these mountains before fighting with the demon Tharakasura. This is the same place where Lord Subramanya prayed Lord Narasimha Swamy to offer protection to the Naga family from Garuda. Garuda is the Vahana of Lord Vishnu, is known for his enmity towards the Snake family.

              Raahu Kaal time is best time and any Mondays, Tuesdays (for marriage) and Sundays (jobs issues) is good to do such pooja. Amavasya, Pournami, Shukla Paksha Sashti or Panchami and Ashlesha Nakshathra day is auspicious to do Raahu Kethu Pooja.
              Ticket cost – Rs. 300, 750, 1500 and 2500.
              Need to reach the temple one hour before raahu kaal time if you want to do it at that time.
              Observing a fast till the completion of the pooja and dharshan is beneficial.
              On buying the ticket you will be provided the Pooja Samagri and not required to buy any other things from outside shops as they my tout you. Be careful.
              Pooja time will be around 30 to 40 minutes. Pooja vidhaan will be explained by the poojari through mic. It is about reciting manthra and you need to perform pooja for two naaga idols.
              Om Namah Shivaya
