It is Nava-graha. The Nine Planets.

The Tamil Nadu Tourism Development Corporation has a `Navagraha Worship package tour', covering nine temples. You can leave Chennai on Friday night and return on Monday morning. The tour is priced at Rs 575 for adults and Rs 500 for children, and covers the following temples: Vaideeswaran Koil (Mars-Angaraka), Thiruvenkadu (Mercury-Budha), Keezhperumpallam (Ketu), Thirunallar (Saturn-Sani), Kanjanur (Venus-Sukra), Suriyanar Koil (Sun-Surya), Thirunageswaram (Rahu), Thingalur (Moon-Chandra) and Alangudi (Jupiter-Guru).

Or you can go to Thanjavur or Kumbakonam as your base, and then take a rental car to visit.
