There is no need to discard your clothes or having a bath after the puja. You can go home in the same clothes.

Puja Samagri: Two metal image of Rahu and Ketu. There is Laddu and Vada Prasadam. Flowers are received from different counter. Also, devotee gets Vermillion [sindoor] and Turmeric [haldi] at Rahu Ketu Puja Samgri.

Good result can be attained by doing Kaal Sarpa Dosha Nivarani puja twice a year. Once in Dakshinayanam [July 15th to Jan 15th] night time for Celestials. The other is in Uttarayanam [Jan 15th to July 15th] day time for Celestials.

    Need clarity on 2 queries:
    1. My wife is 6 months pregnant, can I do the pooja alone & can she accompany me to the temple.
    2. Do you get the ticket for 11th Feb’18 between 4:30pm to 6pm poja, considering weekend rush what time should I come to counter.


    • Dear Manikandan
      Avoiding is FAR better.
      Its Brahmothsavam period and hence you cannot do the pooja.

  10. Sir, I had a kala sarpa dosha in my jhathaka. So I want to do kala sarpa dosha nivarana Pooja at kalahasthi temple. So I need proper information regards kala sarpa nivarana Pooja. And how much cost for kala sarpa dosha nivarana and accommodation?

      Best days are – Chathurthy, Panchami, Sashti, Amavasya or Pournami
      Best time – Raahu kaalam time.
      So chose a thithi that is possible to you and reach the temple two hours before the raahu kaalam time and buy the ticket (open counter). You will be pooja samagri along with the ticket itself. You need not buy any thing outside the temple as touts may cheat you saying something that is necessary for pooja.
      After buying the ticket first get dharshan of Pathala Ganapathy temple or one temple inside the Main temple compound and then go to the Parihara sthala.
      At the parihara sthala (place where pooja is performed) the priest / poojari will recite manthra where you need to say it after him.
      The duration of the parihara pooja will be nearly 45 minutes. After that you are allowed to have dharshan of Lord Shiva and his consort Goddess Gnanaprasunaambhika Devi. That’s it it is finished by may be 1 and half an hour depends on the crowd.
      Accomodation – You can find some cottages belongs to the devasthanam at the back side of the temple mean towards south side of the temples. Or there are lot of private lodges form normal to star hotels that suits your preferances.

      If at Thirunageshwaram you can perform Milk Abhishekam to Rahu.

      Naaga / Sarpa dosham is caused due to the anger / curse of the Serpent God in previous birth. Due to this dosham, marriages are delayed, conjugal life may be disturbed, Progeny may be denied, miscarriages/Abortion will occur. This also effects financial prospects.
      Yes you can do the Rahu Kethu dosha nivarana pooja at Kalahasthi for Naaga dosham.
      For this Naaga Prathishta poojs is very beneficial. You can do this pooja at Kukke Subrahmanya temple in Mangaqluru.
      If the Girl and Boy horoscopes should be matched properly, there is no need to worry about ones conjugal life. You should match properly all the four concepts of matching for a happy married life. Most of the astrologer will go for or check only the Ten Matching and declare for a marriage. it is not the correct way.
      Worship Naaga Devatha on every Tuesdays rahu kaalam time is must.
      Or you can recite Garuda Manthra or Garuda Gayathri Manthra. reciting this manthra daily sincerely and getting his blessings, Naaga devathas wont disturb you.
