Rahu Ketu Puja

Kaal Sarpa Dosha Pooja Details in Sri Kalahasti Temple

In the horoscope, if all planets are placed between Rahu and Ketu, then formation is known as Kaal Sarp Dosha [Yog].

One who has Kal Sarpa Dosha [Yog] would face difficulties in leading a happy life. One might have problems in married life. One might have financial losses and various health problems. One would not get any children. One might have job problems and many more. Kaal Sarp Dosha can be cured by worshiping to Lord Shiva. One of the most significant places of worshipping Maha Deva is Srikalahasti.

Here we give the details about Kaal Sarp Dosh Puja at Sri Kalahasti.

The uniqueness of Sri Kalahasteeswara Swamy at Sri Kalahasti Temple:

The uniqueness of the Idol at Sree Kalahasthi Temple. Here, Lord Siva clearly has all 27 Nakshatras [stars] and 9 Rashis in his Kavacham.

    • Dear Naveenkumar K
      Performing the kaalsarp dosh pooja will not completely malefic the dosha at a time.
      Chanting the Panchakshari Mantra, i.e. Om Namah Shivay or performing the Maha Mrityunjay Mantra at least 108 times daily is an effective way to overcome this yog. Visit Subramanya Swamy temple regularly.

    Astrologer told me that I have kaalsarp dosh and Kuja dosha because of which I will suffer from one or the other health problems all the time and won’t have a satisfied carrier, married life, children. I am worried about this and I want to know does performing the pooja will completely remove the dosha? Can the pooja be done without the presence of devotee.
    Thank you.

  • Hello Guruji,

    An astrologer said my sister has Kaal Sarp Dosha that is why there is a delay in her marriage. Her details are:

    DoB: 14 September 1989
    Time of Birth: 11.25am
    Place of birth: Hyderabad

    We plan to travel from Hyderabad to Srikalahasti on Friday.
    Pls advise if Saturday is good for doing this Pooja at Srikalahasti and what rules should we follow.

    Thank you

    • Dear Sharma
      No Kaala Sarpa dosham in your sister chart.
      Also there is benefic aspect on Rahu Placement.
      But even then doing Rahu Kethu pooja on a Tuesday Raahu kaal time is beneficial.
      The delay in marriage is due to Jupiter Planet placemetn.
      So doing Abhishekam to Lord Dhakshinamuthy on any Thursday and worship the Lord regularly by reviting Dhakshinamiurthy Ashtakam written by Aadhi Shankaraacharya bless her with marriage. Tell her to do this worship regularly and sincerely. Even she can worship Sai Baba and attending Haarathi pooja at temple regularly is beneficial. or she can do it at home also.
      You can do the abhishekam either at Sri Kalahasthi on any Thursdays or even in that is available in the Hyderabad itself.
      And tell her visit Hanuman temple on Tuesdays and worship the Lord as she is presently in the Saturn Maha Dasa. Performing Tila Abhishekam to Lord Saturn gives relief to overcome obstacles.
      Om Namah Shivaya

  • Namaskaram.
    My Daughter is born on 22 nd Dec 2004 .Bangalore at 1.21 pm.
    Astrologer has asked to perform Sarpa dosha nivarana pooja at Kalahastri temple.
    Please tell me whether I should do the pooja at Tuesday raghukalam .

    • Dear Anusha
      For now it is not required to perform Rahu Kethu Dosha Nivarana pooja.
      If she has any Health issues then perform otherwise not required.
      After her 21st age start doing Rahu Kethu Pooja once in a year regularly to appease the malefic planet to bless her for a happy married life.
      Till that take her / tell her to worship Goddess Durga Maa daily on every Tuesdays and Fridays. And regular prayers to Lord Shiva on every Mondays and Guru Dhakshinamurthy on every thursdays.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    Thanking you,

    • Dear Basavaraj Talwar
      Yes you have Kaala Sarpa Dosham.

      Om Namah Shivaya

  • Vanakam 🙏🏽
    Recently my astrologer told me I have kala sarpa dosha. My name is Sivaranjani Rengasamy
    I was born on
    18/06/1980, 10.55pm, Johor Malaysia.
    Could you please tell me which pooja can I do and who to get rid of it.
    And can I do it remotely as I’m from Malaysia?
    Thank you

    • Dear Sivaranjani Rengasamy
      You don’t have Kaala Sarpa dosham so no need to perform Kaala Sarpa dosha Nivarana Pooja anywhere. You will get in to the Rahu Maha Dasa from june 2023 till june 2041. So in this period there will be mixed result. So to get protection or to overcome any hurdles you see you can perform Rahu Kethu pooja during this period or six months before the start of this Maha Dasa.
      Delay in marriage is because of Kuja dosham presence in your kundali and due to the influence of Mars Maha Dasa till June 2023.
      The astrologer has told to perform Kumba Vivaha Ritual (marry ritual with a Banyan or Banana tree or even can do with a Pot also) due to the presence of Kuja dosha and Mars (Kuja) Maha Dasa. So do it if any poojari available / does it at Murugan temple, Malaysia.
      Or else if you visit india, then visit Ghati Subrahmanya Temple near Bengaluru, Karnataka. Here Kuja Dosha Parihara pooja will be done.
      Or else just recite Subrahmanya Bhujanga sthothram till you get marry. And then worship the Lord to bless troubleless married life.
      Also the Kuja dosha intensity will be reduced after the age of 28. So then after you can get marry with proper matching done.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Pinkey
      You don’t have Kaala Sarpa Dosham.
      Santosh has Kaala Sarpa Dosham.
      Doing Dosha nivarana pooja by santosh is all enough and you need not do the Kaala Sarpa Dosha Nivarana pooja.
      May I know where do you stay and I let you know the precise dosha nivarana pooja to performed in which temple.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Kiran
      You don’t have Kaala Sarpa Dosham but since Rahu is not placed well doing Rahu Kethu pooja or Naaga Prathishta is beneficial but not mandatory.
      But you should keep on doing regular worship to Lord Dhakshinamurthy daily or every Thursdays. Doing Abhishekam to Lord Dhakshinamurthy is required on regular basis like once in a year for good result.
      So we can help you doing Rudhra Abhishekam and Dhakshinamurthy Abhishekam.
      So let us know and we wil send further details.
      Om Namah Shivaya
