  2. How to identify weather the panditji has done rahu ketu pooja in the way it should be done as there are many ppl who dont know how to do nd still they charge huge amount

    1. Dear Kanishka
      Normally the famous temples like Kukke, Ghati, Srikalahasthi, Mopi Devi Subrahmanya, Rameshwaram, Thirunageshwaram, Trimbakeshwaram and some other ancient Shiva temples will appoint learned Pandits only in their temples.
      When you assist Private Pandits outside or not related to the temple it may not be Learned Pandits. You should contact the temple official Authority only regarding the Pooja and not others touting outside the temples or the Riversides.
      Comment here which temple do you want to know and if I know will let you know.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    1. Dear Pradeep Kumar
      There is not temple to perform Rahu Kethu shanthi pooja at Delhi. But I heard that there are some Pundits who are doing Rahu Kethu Shanthi pooja in some temples personally after an advance booking with them. So try to contact temples like Prachin Gauri Shankar Temple, Neeli Chhatri Temple. But beware that some may cheat you by charging more. For this Shanthi pooja it doesnot cost more that 3 k to 5k.
      Do you have Kaala Sarpa Dosha.
      If so you can visit Trimbakeshwar and perform Kaala Sarpa dosha nivarana pooja there. Or visit Sri Kalahasthi temple where it cost not more than rs 1500 ticket and 2500 ticket.
      Om Namah Shivaya
