Kaal Sarpa Dosha Pooja Details in Sri Kalahasti Temple


In 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.

Uniqueness of Sri Kalahasteeswara Swamy at Sri Kalahasti Temple:

Sri Kalahasti temple is the only temple that remains open during Grahanam [Solar and Lunar Eclipse] too.

Even priests never touch the Shiva lingam with their hands.

Sri Kalahasti Temple

Rahu Kethu Puja/Sarpa Dosha Puja:

Rahu- Ketu Sarp Dosha Puja is performed in order to decrease ill effects of Dosha [Yog]. Thousands of devotees perform this Puja in Srikalahasti and get their expected results.

The Puja in Srikalahasti:

The Rahu Ketu Pooja is completed in 30 to 40 minutes. It is best to perform the puja during Rahu Kaalam.

Rahu-Ketu Puja is different from other pujas. There are no Homa or Hawana [fire ceremony]. This puja is done by chanting mantras for the twin snakes made of metal strips. These metal strips represent Rahu and Kethu.

Mantra recitations and Puja is done by Sankalpa of the person’s Gotra and Janma Nakshatra.
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.

If possible perform “Rudhra Abhishekam” after completing the Kaal Sarpa Dosha Nivarana Puja.

Sri Kalahastiswara Swamy Temple Timing:

Rahu Kalam:

1) Do’s and Dont’s after performing the Kaal Sarp Dosha Puja
2) Take a head bath before performing the Puja.
3) Females should perform the Puja before or after eight days of Menstruation.

  3. Dear sir myself shailesh T. dob-06May1992 10.40pm midhuna raasi arudra nakshatra born in bangalore do i have kala sarpa dosha

    • Dear Shailesh
      No you dont have Kaala sarpa dosh. But Rahu and Kethu is placed weak in 1 & 7 respectively, so doing rahu kethu pooja every year or at least thrice is beneficial as rahu is placed weak in your Lagna.
      Also worship Lord Gamesj and Subrahmanya daily is must. Visit Subrahmanya temple regularly.
      Observing fast on Sashti thithi is beneficial.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Srinivas
      Don’t take your child to such parihara kshethras till the completion of 3rd year. Actually one year is enough but better wait till 3rd year birthday.
      You along can go to the temple and do the rahu kethu pooja on behalf of yous child. But take a bath before entering your house wet your clothes also.
      23rd , 28th, and 29th, oct are good days to perform.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Sir my name is dixitkumar.a.k from Vijaypur Karnataka and to ask u kal sarpa dosha and sarpa dosha are different or what and what’s the right time to do the pooja in kalahasti

      • Dear Dixit Kumar
        Kala Sarpa Dosha – When all the seven planets in a horoscope other than rahu and kethu are held / locked up in between house of Rahu and Ketu, it is called ‘Kala Sarpa dosham / Yoga’. When kaala sarpa dosham / yogam is happened but aspected by strong Jupiter then it doesnot affects the Native.
        Kala means time, sarpa means serpent, yoga means combination. Kala sarpa yoga means that the soul is caught by the serpent of time within the axis of Karma.
        This dosham / yogam normally is experienced by a person on the basis of his karma of the previous birth.
        Naaga / Sarpa dosham is caused when Rahu and Ketu afflict the house related to marriage and children i.e. 1st, 2nd, 5th, 7th & 12th.
        Mere presence of Rahu and Ketu in the above houses does not cause the dosha, if any of the houses are strong due to good aspects or association it nullifies any adverse effects.
        Naga dosham is said to delay marriage or child birth. Naaga dosham native married to another person who has Naaga dosham will reduce or nullify the dosham and may result in better married life.
        Kaala Sarpa dosham affects a native life in any sort. It takes the native to any distance, to a good height or a massive downfall.
        When Rahu and Sun are placed together in a house it indicates pithru dosha and it affects father of the horoscope. Ketu with moon, creates worries. It casts a shadow on mother. When the mars comes along with them it affects brothers. There will be accidents to be met with. If Budha (Mercury) sits with them it affects Uncle’s health. The outcome may be crime. If they go along with Guru, it affects children. Sukra’s combination affect marital life. Saturn’s conjunction may affect health and longevity.
        Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Vivekananda
      Those who has Kaala sarpa dosham should perform rahu kethu pooja on regular basis like once in a year on an auspicious day rahu kaalam time. Also it takes some Year to get reduce.
      You need to Establish Kaal Sarp Shanti Yantra on an auspicious day consulting an expert priest in your home and worship it regularly.
      Also Presently you are in Jupiter Maha dasa where Jupiter is not placed that much well. So reciting Guru Manthra for 108 times daily is beneficial to reduce your problems. Visit Sai Baba or Dhatthathreya Temple and participate in the Haarathi pooja regularly.

      No Kaala sarpa dosham. You have Kuja dosham with Mars placed in Lagna and hence seperation.
      Also due to bad aspect on Sun by a malefic planet your married life is disturbed.
      Yes you will feel like disturbed life.
      Please follow the Remedies sincerely, so that you can soon get into track –
      Wake up daily before sun rise time. Do some exercises for a while.
      Establish saffron colored idols of Ganapathy and Hanuman at your pooja room and worship daily. Recite Hanuman chaleesha daily or every tuesdays and saturdays. Visit Hanuman temple regularly. Avoid alcohol and non veg for ever.
      Participate in Sai Baba Aarathi pooja in a temple regularly and must on every Thursdays as per possibility. Or Recite Guru manthra for 108 times daily at home.
      Dont loose you confidence to down. If you loose then will go to adahpathaal life. So always try to be courageous, active everytime. Just do anything as your duty without expecting anything. This will really boost your physic and mentality as well as your life also soon.
      Worship of lord Hanuman will give complete protection from Saturn.

  9. My birth details:09/02/1987, birth time: 19.10, Place: Mumbai. Husband details: 19/07/1987, birth time: 21.30, Mumbai. As per astrologer I am having kaal sarp dosh which should be treated by doing Pooja at Sri Kalahasthi. Can u check if I really have this dish and when to perform Pooja? Which dates?

    • Dear Kareeshma
      No you dont have Kaal sarp dosh. But malefic conjunction with Mars who is also weak, placed in Ayusthana and is the reason. So doing rahu kethu pooja is beneficial.
      Since 09.2017 you are in Saturn Maha dasa till 09.2036. Saturn is placed ill and weak and hence this dasa you may suffer from unexpected loss, disappointments in undertakings or hinders you in all of your deeds.
      Please tell me which month do you plan to do this pooja and we will give you dates.
      or simply you can do this pooja on a Sashti thishi (sixth day of waxing or wanning moon), Krishna Paksh Panchami (5th day after pournami) raahu kaal time.
      First Perform Rudhra Abhishekam to Lord Kaalahastheeshwara and then do rahu kethu pooja. So plan and comment and we give you dates.
      You have Mangal dosh. So worship of Kesariya Ganapathy and Hanuman idols at your pooja room will bless you for a child. Reciting Hanuman chaleesha on every tuesdays and saturdays is best for you to get protected from this dosh or mis match.
      Your husband also dont have kaal sarp dosh. But doing rahu kethu pooja is beneficial only since rahu and kethu are weak placed in dhana and ayu sthana.
      Om Namah Shivaya
