    1. Dear Rajesh
      Srikalahasti Temple Rahu Ketu Pooja Timings are from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM on all days. Online Booking is not available.

  3. Hi sir, I’m planning to come for Rahu kethu pooja on this September 19th 2021(Sunday).May I know is the temple open now to perform Rahu kethu pooja also please specify the pooja timing on sunday.

    1. Dear Jayabaskar
      You can very well come to Sri Kalahasthi temple to perform Rahu Kethu pooja.
      Sunday Rahu Kaal time falls in between 04.30 pm and 06.00 pm. So inorder to perform the pooja during that time you need to reach the temple ticket counter one or two hours before the time to get the ticket to enter.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    1. Dear Mohan
      It is not suggestible. First visiting Kanipakkam and then coming to Sri Kalahasthi to perform Rahu Kethu pooja is the correct procedure. If want to visit on your way back then stay in Sri Kalahasthi for that day and after a head bath, get the clothes washed and dry and then go to Kanipakka next day.
      Om Namah Shivaya
