Before you enter the temple you have to pass through a sea of people asking for money. Once you enter you are greeted with counters after counters asking for money and selling you tickets. No matter what tickets you buy, you will land up in the same place and unless you know how to push and elbow through the crowd... More

Good place to do Kala sarpa dosha. Would be fortunate if visited during rahu kal. The proceedings are done very patiently. Make sure to take ticket of 1500.

This will be the best place to do a Kaal Sarpa or Rahu-Ketu Dosha puja. The ticket price will vary and the temple tends to be very crowded. Therefore, it is better to buy a more expensive ticket to get better access to the temple premises and for better puja. The dosha puja ticket and items are all sold within... More

The most advised place to do Raghu-Kethu Sarpa nivarana Pooja is at Srikalahasthi, Andhra Pradesh. Having participated in the pooja, thought that writing on the same would be helpful for those who want to go and perform the pooja.
