    • Dear Sunil Kumar
      You can do rahu kethu poojs or Naaga prathishta pooja for this Sarpa dosham.
      Rahu kethu pooja is done at Kalahasthi or at Mopi Devi Subrahmanya temple near Vijayawada or any temple dedicated to Naaga devatha where it done.
      If you want to do Naaga prathishta then you can visit Kukke Subrahmanya temple near Bengaluru.
      Rahu kethu pooja is enough and if you find yet your problems not solved then go for Naaga Prathishta pooja.
      Do the poojas on any Panchami or Sashti thithi raahu kaalam time is best.

But need not worry as both gives troubles just to make you learn more about your life. so just cheer up forgetting all your worries and just follow the below remedies sincerely and ardently.
        When you reach Kalahasthi temple first offer your first worship to Lord Ganesh and then do the Rahu Kethu pooja turns beneficial effect.
        1. Always worship Lord Ganesh first with any sthothram and make you wish submitted to the Lord.
        2. Worship Lord Hanuman by reciting Hanuman chaleesha daily (avoid from four days before and start after fifts day on those days ma) or every Tuesdays and Saturdays. And do visit temple and if you find Navagrahas there itself do pradhakshina.

      • Thanks a lot sir
        Kindly guide me what all are the items need to carry and what will be the procedures and whom to meet there

        • Dear Kamal Singh
          Ticket cost – Rs. 1500, 750, 300.
          Need to reach the ticket counter two hours prior to raahu kaal time.
          The Devasthanam will give the pooja samagri (two naaga idols, others required for pooja) along the ticket for rahu kethu pooja. If you did not find flowers in it then buy some flowers is enough. Beyond this you need not buy anything.
          When seated at the pooja sthala you need to place two naaga idols and when the poojari start reciting the manthra you need to recite the same. He will guide in four languages – Hindi etc.
          It takes 40 minutes to complete the pooja.
          After that Dharshan for Lord and Goddess. It finished. From here you need to go straight back to your HOME ONLY and not any where.
          Do not get fooled by the touts near the shops as they might put you to buy saying something.
          Om Namah Shivaya

                  • Dear Rahul Jaiswal
                    No you don’t have Kaala sarpa dosh.

                    Also worship of Dhakshina Murthy and Datthathreya is suggestible.

        Which date to visit in this month?
        Which pooja to perform n which ticket 2500? Planning for Saturday mostly…wats the best time?

        • Dear Purusotham
          Pooja – Kaala Sarpa dosha poooja.
          Dates – 15th Tuesdays or 29th Tuesday raahu kaal time are good days for this month – May 2018.
          You can opt for Rs 2500 or 1500 or 750 or 300. Because pooja vidhaan are all the same but place differs.
          I can suggest to go for Rs.1500 ticket because it is done very near to the main shrine of the Lord.
          First visit and worship Lord Ganesh before going to the parihara sthala. There are two temples available in at Kalahasthi. One is on the way before the ticket counter and the other is inside the main shrine near to the parihara sthala (poojari available only here to make archana if you prefer).
          Om Namah Shivaya

        Perform ganesh worship first and then perform the rahu kethu pooja is must.
        Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Ganesh
      There is no Kaala sarpa dosham to Daksh. Need to check his horoscope in deep.
      For now perform the rahu kethu pooja on a Saturday raahu kaalam time.
      Worship of Lord Ganesh and Hanuman is beneficial. Take him to Hanuman temple and circle the Navagrahas on every Saturdays.
      Perform tila abhishekam to Lord Saturn on possible Saturdays.
      Manthan has Kaala sarpa dosham.
      Perform rahu kethu pooja on a Saturday raahu kaalam time.
      Worship of Lord Ganesh and Hanuman is beneficial. Take him to Hanuman temple and circle the Navagrahas on every Saturdays.
      Perform tila abhishekam to Lord Saturn on possible Saturdays.
      Perform Hanuman pooja – consult a poojari at Hanuman temple an d get it done.

        Thanks a lot for your valuable advise. We will reach there on 14th May 2018. So from 14th May onwards which day will be suitable for kala sarpa dosham pooja for our son Manthan.
        I request you sir please go through Daksh’s horoscope as he is suffering a lot and suggest us which Pooja we have to give at Sri kalahasti temple.

        • Dear Ganesh
          For Daksh – for Good Health – Perform Rudhra Abhishekam to Lord Shiva at Kalahasthi.
          Take him to the Pradosh Pooja conducted in almost all Shiva temples every where regularly when ever it is possible for you. This pooja will be held during the evening time of the Pradosh thithi. So you can take him.
          Om Namah Shivaya

                You can perform rahu kethu pooja on 11th Sunday 0430 – 0600 pm. or 12th Monday 0730 – 0900 am may be convinient for you.
                Yes you can stay in a private lodge or temple choultries available beside the temple itself. But if you want to visit tirumala or any other temple visit them first and at last come to Kalahasthi and do the pooja go straight to your home only.

    • Dear Lav
      At Kalahasthi rahu kethu pooja is done by reciting manthras. If you want to perform Navagraha shanthi pooja you can do it in a nearby temple having Navagrahas. If navagrahas is installed in Hanuman temple then well and fine.
      Or if you want best temples – Devipatnam Thilakeshwarar temple near Ramanadhapuram in TN., or at Ghati Subrahmanyam temple. At Ghati Navagraha santhi pooja along with rahu kethu dosha pooja will be done, but will cost nearly 5k.

      Along the ticket you will be given the pooja samagri and nothing you need to buy extra except some flowers. Don’t believe the touts outside the temple saying something.
      After buying the ticket worship Lord Ganesh inside the main temple or Paathala Ganapathy (check for the crowd as it may delay for you sit in time of raahu kaal).
      Om Namah Shivaya

  • Hi,

    I’m planning to do “Special Aseervachana Rahu Ketu Kala Sarpa Nivarana Pooja on 11th Feb’18 (Sunday)

    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.
      You can better plan after delivery.

  • 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?

    • Dear Sreedhara
      Ticket cost – rs 350, 750, 1500 and 2000.
      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.
      Om Namah Shivaya

      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Neepa
      For Naaga dosha dosha – Naaga Prathishta should be done as weel as rahu kethu pooja can be done at Kalahasthi to reduce the dosha.
      For Kaala Sarpa dosha – Can do Rudhra Abhishekam and then Rahu kethu pooja only is enough.
      If at Thirunageshwaram you can perform Milk Abhishekam to Rahu.
      Om Namah Shivaya

  • What is Naga Dosha?Naga Dosaha nivarana can be done in sri kala hasthi.Please tell the information about it

    • Dear Rajyalakshmi
      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.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Neepa

    • Dear Raju
      Rahu kethu dosham and Kuja dosham are different.
      Rahu kethu dosham is occured by the malefic energy of rahu and kethu.
      Kujha dosha is the effect of Mars planet.
      You can perform the rahu kethu pooja on karthika pournami.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Kambesha
      You need to perform rahu kethu pooja every if you have any of the 12 types of Kaala sarpa dosha. First you need to perform simple pooja for Lord Ganesha and then go to the rahu kethu pooja – MUST.
      And you need to recite rahu manthra for 108 times daily or every Saturdays at least.
      Worship Lord Ganesha and Subrahmanya daily or every Tuesdays.
      Perform Rudhra Abhishekam adds advantage.
