  • Hi, I’m planning for rahu kethu pooja on 15/Feb/2020, coming from Bangalore(suggest a plan). At what time temple people start issuing the tickets? clothes to be discarded after pooja?

  • Is it mandatory the concerned person will be present at the time of performing the rahu ketu pooja at temple ?

    otherwise the temple’s pandit will perform the pooja on our name.is it any chances will be there like rudra abhishekam etc.?

    • Dear SAKA SREENIVASU
      When the affected person performs the Puja on his own is said to be auspicious. But if unable to make the presence then they can do the puja thru their Parents. If not then we can get it done.

  • Hello sir,

    Good afternoon, we are planned to do rahu kethu pooja in coming sunday,(21-07-2019). which time is better to do the pooja. let me know the details..

    • Dear Jaishree
      The temple will be open from 5.00 AM TO 9.00 PM. SriKalahasti temple is auspicious for rahu kethu pooja so you can perform at any time.
      If you are particular about time perform the pooja in Rahu Kalam. Sunday Rahu Kalam time is 4:30 PM To 6.00 PM

  • Is it mandatory to stay overnight in Kalahasti. As we are from bangalore and early morning travel is convenient for us without staying.

    • Dear Rupesh
      It is not mandatory.
      It is about 9 to 10 hours to reach Kalahasth from Bengaluru. So starting there by night time reaching tirupati by morning 3 and 5 am, you can reach Kalahasthi by 5 or 6 am and very well you can do rahu kethu pooja and start by afternoon to reach Bengaluru by night.
      If you want to do as i told put a comment about planned days and i let you know how to start and go back finishing pooja.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Ekanath
      The online facility is not yet properly desighed. You can very will easily buy the ticket in person as lot of tickets available for the devotees.
      Reach the temple at least one hour before the desired time of your choice or possibility to do rahu kethu pooja. A little earlier on hokidays would be better as crowd may throng in huge.
      Om Namah Shivaya
