      Observing fast on every sashti thithi starting it on a Shukla Paksha Sashti Thithi is more beneficial to overcome all of your obstacles. Only thing is to please the Lord with your prayers and fast.
      Worship Lord Hanuman is also necessary.

      Also water banyan tree on every Saturdays and do worship Lord Vishnu (especiall the form of Lord Rama) is must.

    • Dear Pallavi Arun
      Rahu Maha Dasa since 05.2004 and 05.2022.
      There after you will have Jupiter Maha dasa which is a beneficial period for you. So this period could be favorable.
      Perform Rahu Kethu pooja on any Sunday or Monday raahu kaal time. First perform pooja to Lord Ganesh, then Rudhra Abhishekam and then do the rahu kethu pooja which is beneficial.
      At home perform water Abhishekam to Lord Shiva and dhup dheep aarathi and recite Maha Mrithyunjeya manthra which in turn may bless good health.
      Observe Sashti vrath pooja satrting it on a Shukla Paksha Sashti thithi.
      Om Namah Shivaya

        • Dear Pallavi Arun
          You should do it in a Temple only not in you home.
          Temples like Kukke or Ghati Subrahmanya temples in Karnataka, or Sri Kalahasthi or Srisailam temple or Mopi Devi Subrahmanya in Andhra Pradesh and Rameshwaram, Thirunageshwaram, Thirunageshwar temple (chennai) in Tamil Nadu.
          Doing rahu Kethu pooja once or once in a year is enough. If you feel good after doing for once then can stop or if you feel better then do it again till you see something constructive.
          Best Days – Shukla Paksha Panchami or Sashti thithi raahu kaal time, Amavasya or Pournami Raahu kaal time or Ashlesha nakshathra day rahu kaal time.
          Observe a fast till completion of the parihara pooja is beneficial but not mandatory.
          Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Srinivas

  • Dear Divya
    No it is not performed here. But if you want to do it then need to come one day before and consult a local priest to get it done.
    May i know your living place and i let you know a nearby temple for you to do it.
    Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Ganesh
      There is no restrictions or any changes for the poojas in the temple so far.
      So as of now need to go and check in person.
      Om Namah Shivaya

  • Respected Sir
    I’m married 35 year old woman and my DOB is 18/06/1983, time 2:10am . It’s been 8 years of my marriage and haven’t been able to conceive. I have visited multiple doctors for any fertility issue and have found none. I have heard of this temple from my doctor that if we visit gharu Subramanyam we will for sure get blessed with a child. Can you suggest me in this regard, please?

    • Dear Sailaja
      Yes Lord Subrahmanya is widely believed to bless his ardent devotees with a child.
      Do as follows –
      Daily first worship Lord Ganesh before sun rise time.
      Then chant OM SARAVANA BHAVAYA NAMAH for 108 times or more if you wish daily or every Tuesdays regularly.
      This gains luck to be blessed with your desires.
      Observing Sashti vrath pooja for 21 or 45 Thithis regularly is alnos one can get the lords Blessings.
      For once perform Rahu kethu pooja at either Ghati Subrahmanya or at Kukke Subrahmanya temple.
      There is one temple Gharba Rakshambha temple in Tamilnadu. You can also worship the Goddess to bless with a child. There the temple will issue Prasadh to concieve and remove any doshas in your reproductive system. Here is the link you visit the temple site – http://garbaratchambigaitemple.org/
      You can also book the prasadh if you are unable to visit the temple in the same website online.
      May God Bless With you a Child Soon.
      Om Namah Shivaya

  • Dear sir
    My is Nalini my date of birth is 13 Feb 1993 @ 9 pm…. I consultant astrology they told that I’m suffering from kuja dosha … Pls tell how to get parihara about this dosha… Because marriage is getting very delayed… Pls tell which temple best to get nivarah kuja dosha…. Some suggested ghati or kukke temple.

    • Dear Nalini
      Yes you can do the kuja dosha pooja at ghati or Kukke or can visit Vaitheeshwaran temple near Kumbakonam, TN. Ghat temples charges a little bit costlier. So
      Mostly one who has kuja dosha will get marry after 28 or 30th age. Getting marry after that is best.
      Recite Subrahmanya bhujanga sthothram daily or every Tuesdays and visit Subrahmanya temple.
      Always start pooja offered to Lord Ganesh.

    • Dear Pratheepa
      According to Sthala Purana (Temple legend) Ghati is the place where Lord Subramanya erformed penance in the guise of a serpent inside the caves in the mountain ranges of this area before going to kill the demon Tharakasura. Ghati is also the place where Lord Subramanya invoked protection from Lord Lakshmi Narasimha for the serpentine clan from Garuda’s scare. Traditionally Garuda the divine mount of Lord Vishnu is known to be an enemy of Serpentine tribe.
      The uniqueness about this temple is that Lord Subramanya and Lord Lakshmi Narasimha both Deities are carved on a single rock (single idol) or said as self manifested (swayambhu) idol with Lord Subramanya in a seven hooded serpentine form facing east and Lord Lakshmi Narasimha facing west. One can view Lord Lakshmi Narasimha through strategically placed mirror inside the sanctum sanctorum.
      Resto of some more interesting material is sent to your email id so read and get the grace of the lord.
      Om Namah Shivaya

Already done Rahu Katu pooja at srikalahasti. Marriage is getting delayed what should I do. What are the best remedies and nivarana poojas for kuja dosham. Awaiting for your reply.

    • Dear Karthik
      Two best temple to perform this kujha dosha pooja are
      Mangalnath temple in Ujjaini and Vaitheeshwaran temple near Kumbakonam TN.
      Or JUST worship Lord Ganesha first and then recite the Subrahmanya Bhujanga sthothram daily and observe a fast on every Tuesdays. This is enogh that appease Mars / removes Kujha.
      You may get marry after 40. But sincerely worship Lord Ganesha and Subrahmanya daily and please with your prayers and sure you will get marry soon.
