    • Dear Ashokkumar
      Yes Parents can perform Rahu Ketu Pooja on behalf of your son. But take a shirt or a T-shirt of your son and keep it with you while perform the pooja.

    • Dear Vidyasagar
      There is no online / pre booking facility for Kalahasthi.
      Only in person booking as you can get the ticket in ease. But if you prefer to do the pooja during Raahu kaal then need to reach the ticket counter one or two hours before.
      Ticket cost – Rs. 300 750 1500 and 2500 respectively. Pooja vidhaan for all the ticket are same and pooja samagri will be given along with the ticket itself and beyond you need not buy anyother things outside the temple.
      Om Namah Shivaya
