Rahu Ketu Dosha Nivarana Puja

Srikalahasti
---------------------------------------

The temple is also associated with Rahu and Kethu (of the nine grahams or celestial bodies in the Indian astrological scheme). The river Suvarnamukhi takes the northerly course at Sri Kalahasthi almost washing the west wall of the famous temple . Inside this very large temple, situated between two steep hills Sripuram and Mummidi-cholapuram, is the Sivalinga set to represent the element of Vayu.

This temple is considered as the Kailash of the South or Dakshin Kailash. Saivaite saints of the first century sang about this temple.

Remedy for Kalasarpa Dosham is to perform Rahu Ketu pooja once in every six months . Once in Dakshinayanam (July 15th to Jan 15th) & once in Uttarayanam (Jan 15th to July 15th). Those who cannot perform any other rituals like homas and japas, they can do this Rahu Ketu pooja in Kalahasti regularly as said above to get relief from Kala Sarpadosham. Sri Kalahasti temple is the only temple that is kept open during Grahanam (Solar and Lunar Eclipse). Lord Siva here have all 27 Nakshatras and 9 Rashis in his Kavacham. Even purohits don?t touch the Sivalingam here with hands. It is one of the Pancha-Bootha Lingas. It is Vayu Lingam.
