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

We visited this temple to do our pooja for Rahu and Kethu Dosha Nivaranam during the Rahu Kala timing preferably on Saturday during 9-10.30 AM; Only thing is you should not take any breakfast before doing this Pooja. My advice is :- 1)You go to this temple sufficiently in advance of the Rahu kala timing, at least 1/2 hour before.... More

One of the main things that you come for to Srikalahasti is to do Rahu Ketu Sarpadosha Nivarana Pooja. This place is like a temple town and about 50kms from Tirupati. You could visit this temple on your way back to Chennai from Tirupati. The equivalent destination to do a similar ritual is Tryambakeshwar in Maharashtra but for us South... More
