The Temple:


To Perform Pooja For Kala Sarpa Dosha - Visit Sri Kalahasthi Kalahatheeswarar Temple
Vishwakarma brahmin Sthapthis was the one who sculpted this temple. This temple features an enormous, ancient Gopuram over the main gate. The entire temple is carved out of the side of a huge stone hill. The temple is surrounded by two sacred hills, The Durgamba temple is found on the northern hill, while Kannappa Nayanar temple on the southern hill. It is found on the banks oif the river Swarna Mukhi.

The Lingam here is swayambu , and it is white in colour. The Main lingam is untouched by the human beings , even by the priest. Abhishekam is done by pouring a mixutre of water , milk, camphor and panchamrita. Sandal paste , flowers, and the sacred thread are offerred to th e Uthsava murthi , not the main Lingam.

There is a lamp inside the inner sanctum that is constantly flickering despite the lack of air movement inside. The air can be observed even when the priests close the main deity room, which does not have any windows. One can see the flames on several ghee lamps flicker as if blown by moving air.

The temple is also associated with Rahu and kethu, as per astrology to be redeemed from the clutches of Sarpa dosham. The temple is considered as the Kailash of the south or Dakshin Kailash.

This ancient Sri Kalahasti temple dedicated to Lord Siva is one of the five Panchabhootha stalams (temples celebrating Lord Siva as the embodiment of the five primary elements), air (wind) being the element in this case; the other elements being water at (Thiruvanaikaval), fire at (Annamalaiyar Temple), earth at (Ekambareswarar Temple) and space at (Chidambaram Temple) that Siva embodies.


Legends:

To Perform Pooja For Kala Sarpa Dosha - Visit Sri Kalahasthi Kalahatheeswarar Temple
Sri Kalahasti is named after the staunch devotees of Lord Shiva. They were the Spider (Sri), the Serpent (Kala) and the Elephant (Hasti). Appeased with their unflinching devotion, Lord Shiva gave them a boon that their names be merged with the Vayulinga and called as Sri Kalahasteewara.

According to Hindu mythology, the elephant or Hasti used to clean the Shiva deity by watering the idol with the help of river-water carried in his trunks and pray for him by placing Bilva leaves. The spider or Sri tried to protect the deity from external damage by weaving his web and to provide shelter for the Shiva lingam. The snake or Kala used to place its precious gem on the linga to adorn the lord. In this way, they all worshipped the Vayu linga separately without knowing what the other was doing.

One day, the spider had built a very big and thick web around the deity to protect it from dust and weather while the snake places its gem. The elephant not knowing this and assuming that this form of puja by Sri and Kala is a desecration by the seeming miscreants, pours water on it and cleans it up. This causes a war between the three. The snake punishes the elephant by entering its trunk and in the process kills itself while the elephant runs amock and hits its trunk and head against the shiva linga. During this struggle, the spider is squashed against the linga by the elephant's trunk and the elephant dies due to the snake's poison. Lord Shiva then appeared and gave moksha to all three of them for their selfless devotion. The spider takes rebirth as a great king while the elephant and the snake reaches heaven for satisfying all its karma.
The spider was Vishwakarma's (architect of the deva ganas) son Oornanabha. He was replicating Brahma-the creator's job and an annoyed Brahma cursed him to become a spider.
The snake was once cursed by Siva himself.
The elephant was a Deva (Pramadha) cursed by Siva's wife, Parvathi, when he intruded their privacy!
The Siva linga at Srikalahasti is an amalgamation of the three animals.

This king continues his good work from his previous birth and builds a variety of temples that seeks to protect the underlying deity with tons of stones. It is interesting to note that all his temples, keep the deity beyond the access of an elephant. In this temple, access to the deity is through a narrow passage in the side of the building that prevents an elephant from extending its trunk over the lord from any side.

Antoher one is Kannappa:


At Sri Kalahasti, Lord Shiva tested the unshakable devotion of Kanna (Later became Bhaktha Kannappa) before the sages gathered at SriKalahasti. With his divine power, Lord Shiva created a tremor and the roof tops of the temple began to fall. All the sages ran away from the scene except Kannappa who covered the linga with his body to prevent it from any damage.

In another incident, Kannappa plucked out one of his eyes and placed in the eye of Linga which was oozing with blood and tears. When the tears and the blood were still trickling from another eye, Kannappa decided to remove his second eye and placed one of his feet on the spot of the right eye of the Shiva Linga. Before he could pull out his second eye with the arrow, Lord Shiva appeared and restored his eye while granting him a boon to occupy a place close to him.

According to Swami Sivananda's book, Sixty-Three Nayanar Saints, pg. 44, some Saivite traditions believe that Kannappa was the reincarnation of Arjuna. Arjuna, worshipped Siva for seeking the Pasupatha Astra and failed to recognize Him in the form of a hunter. Thus, according to this tradition, Arjuna had to be born as a hunter and adore the Lord before attaining final liberation. This belief is not adopted by all Hindus.

Dhoorjati Maha Kavi(poet) written Sri Kalahasti Mahtyam in Telugu at Krishna Devaraya times.

Sri Kalhasti temple is situated near by Suvarnamukhi River.

Mayura, Chandra and Devendra were also freed from their curses after taking bath in the river Swarnamukhi and prayed at Srikalahasti.

Patala Ganapati is a small underground temple located in the temple complex. Pilgrims should make it a point to visit this interesting place. One has to bow down carefully to worship this Ganapati 20 feet below on a very narrow staircase.

KALASARPA DOSHA POOJA:
The Rahu Ketu Sarpa dosha nivarana puja is a popular puja undertaken by devotees at this temple. This is offered in three variations, all of which serve the same purpose but offer varying degrees of comfort and special treatment for the devotee. There are 3 rates for pooja; Rs. 250/, Rs. 1000/- and Rs. 1500/-. While Rs. 250/- pooja is performed outside prakaram (a wall surrounding main temple premises), Rs. 1000/- pooja is performed within in prakaram (at Subramanya swamy temple), and Rs. 1500/- is performed within temple premises. While you can perform pooja at any time, performing pooja during rahu kalam is considered to be auspicious.

The fee(I'm talking about is Rs.1500 option, here) is inclusive of the puja samagri (which consists of 2 metal representations of Rahu and Ketu, along with the prasadam of Laddu and Vada. make sure you ask the people for guidance/clarifications, as in addition to what you are given at the counter, you need to go around and get the flowers n leaves from others counters (at a nominal extra charge- which is very much required during the puja). make sure you carry your ticket around.. (very, very important.. u'll need it everywhere till the exit.)

The puja is not a fire ceremony(homa/havan). It's mostly about praying to the two (snake like) metal representations of Rahu and Ketu and doing offerings with kumkum(vermilion) and haldi(turmeric) powders and flowers while repeating the mantras which the Priest recites. During Pooja You'll be asked to tell the priest your name and gotra.

The process takes not more than 20 - 30 minutes.

After Pooja comes the Dakshina (This tradition is one of acknowledgment, respect, and thanks):
Dont be surprised when the priest murmurs something in your ears like a mantra, after the puja.. and you hear something like 200 rs.! yeah, he's refering to the dakshina! you are required to keep 2 crisp 100rs notes on the betel leaf and hand it over to him. I told you, its inevitable! c'mon, someone who spends 1500 per head for a puja shouldnt be bothered about shelling out another 200 bucks, eh?

After the puja, one should take bath and discard the clothes / ornaments that were worn at the time of the puja (which is symoblic of washing away all the ill-effects).
So my little advise is avoid wearing diamond/ navaratna rings and Rado watches and brand new Lee jeans etc. Wear a dhoti for pooja and avoid your costly clothes / ornaments as much as possible.

On the way to /back from the temple don't visit any other temple. Reach your home directly after Rahu Ketu Sarpadosha Nivarana Puja or Kala Sarpa Pooja.

  21. Hi Swamiji,

    I was impressed by your blog write-up on kalahasti temple poojas and thus contacting you for an extended support…
    I have planned to visit Kalahasti temple during this weekend and would be arriving by late Saturday evening, so that we can spend full Sunday (16th Oct) at temple till evening before we travel back to Chennai…would request you to advice on the facility available for making/offering pooja at temple on Sunday and if there is any advance reservation available to avoid crowds? I would be travelling along with my wife and two childrens…I particulary not coming for rahu-ketu but to come over to pray for my Son’s well being as he is unfder medical treatment…is there any other pooja possible on Sunday morning timings apart from rahu-ketu?

    Appreciate your earliest reply, so that we can plan accordingly…

  34. Hi,

    Thanks to your wonderful article, i was made aware of the rituals to be followed like the discarding of clothes and having bath immediately after the Kaal Sarp puja. There is no mention of this in the official website, and not much information anywhere else. The experience in seeing the linga, was really a one of a kind and i could feel the energy emanating from it. It felt really good

    I'm really grateful for your article.

    I have a small doubt, during the puja i was given a couple of dress pieces, what should i do with them? I didn't discard them as i wasn't sure what to do with it.

    Please advice.

  40. http://www.srikalahastitemple.com/the site has all details.
    More over do not approach any mediators.
    book tickets thru www.apsrtconline.in and return tickets as well.

    Leave chappals/cell phone ONLY at Temple's counters only. Inside temple have so many banners self explanatory and always approach only police/ May I help u counters. To do Pooja outside materials are allowing inside. To do Pooja coupons Rs.300/750/1500
    For 300, will do Pooja at 15th Century old hall at outside temple.
    For 705, will do pooja at 17th Century old hall at outside temple.
    For 1500,inside temple. No difference in the Poojas.ALL ARE SAME.

    Remember Ur name, Rasi, Nakshathra, Gothram(Siva/Vishnu).

    For eg: For doing Pooja on Sunday at 4:30 PM. Get the Rs.300 coupon at 2:45PM and stand in the queue. They ll give instructions in at least 5 languages. Pooja starts at 4:30 and ends at 4:50. After that to avoid rush Get Rs.50/- Special Dharshan ticket. You may come out from temple at around 6PM take bath and leave ur weared clothes and wear new dress.

    If u book return ticket to return Chennai at 7:15 Bus then u would hav enough time and reach bus depot on time. Temple to bus stand Rs.15/head.

  46. Thanks for the info, whoever wrote it. This helped to get prior info on the puja/temple. This place is great, the energy is real holy. Lot of people visit the place and the temple is huge. Normally people who visit Tirumala, visit this holy place also. If you are visiting the first time, get a guide inside the temple. This will save you time and energy (paying the guide for his help will be a good deed too). Else one will be lost in searching for the place.

  48. Hi Guruji,

    I have been reading alot about the Kala Sarvam Dhosam Puja and I was advised to travel to Kalasti Temple to perform this Puja. I did read the best day to perform this Puja is on a Sasti day which is usually once a month and the best timing will be during Rahu Kalam. Can you please confirm if this information is correct.

    I was also told we need to be on strict vegetarian diet for 10 days prior to this Puja. Is this 10 day sufficient/acceptable?

    Understand its not advisable go to other temples immediately after this Puja. How about the next day. We plan to go to Thirupathi the next day morning.

    Pls email at adk1681@gmail.com
    Many thanks

  55. I am a female and i have kal sharp dosh and want to come to this temple for the puja. I have few quires, please let me know...No one is picking the call so i thought of asking here-

    1) Do i need to take appointment or i can come any time any day?
    2) Do i need to come along with my family or alone also i can come for the puja?
    3) Do i need to ask my pandit which puja i have to do? As somebody told me there are many types in this kal sharp dosh. I was planning to go to kukke subramanya temple but did not want to wait for long time as they will give appointment after 2 to 3 months, so when i was planning to go there somebody told me they will ask you which Seva you have to do...so am little confused with this Seva word, what exactly i have to ask my pandit and say the same at the time of interview?

    Please reply me at sonu.7777@yahoo.com...please reply me soon so that i do this puja soon as i am facing so many problems in my life...

  65. Dear Guruji

    my son has kala sarpa dosham and we have been advised by the astrologer to perform the pooja at kalahasti temple. My query is this:

    After the pooja, is it necessary that everyone accompanying my son should take a dip in the river, shed their old clothes and wear new one OR this ritual is only for the person who has sarpa dosha and for whom the pooja is being performed. Kindly let me know. My email id is priyams09@gmail.com. We are planning to come to the temple on Monday or Tuesday (15th or 16th April 2013).

    I am Jay. I got engaged now. Marriage is in November. My fiance has KALA dosha. The priest had asked her to go to Kalashasti temple and perform some puja. I have few doubts:
    1) Should she go alone or can I also accompany her?
    2) Should she alone do the puja or should I also do?

    Thanks.

  75. Visit the Temple one day before and get know about the temple. The best day and timings to do puja is on Saturdays at 9:00AM. Everyday it will start from 6:30 AM till 9:00PM. You need to purchase ticket on the same day.

    There will be three categories 350/750/1200 of tickets. There will be flower man who is selling lotus flowers for 40Rs just beside the ticket counter. Purchase the flowers and wait in a queue according to the category(350/750/1200) locations.

    Break 1 coconut before entering as they guide you. The poojari will chant mantras in Kannada, Telugu, Tamil, Hindi according people need to chant.

    There should not be hurry-burry. Be patience and do not afraid of God. You entered the temple because of Dosha. Believe in Sarpas and your mind should and body should concentrate only on prayer.

    for 2-3 min you will be given time to pray inside and to ask the God to remove your dosha. It is the bestest time in your life.

    at the end poojari say keep 101Rs on the beetel leaves in front of the Rahu Ketu and you will be adviced to put the Rahu Ketu idols in the hundi which is inside and near to the Vayu Lingam(The main God).


    .........

    As I was searching on this I came to another website links stating...
    one can visit nearby Subramaniyam Swami Temple and offer milk to the God for 7 Tuesdays.

    Does his parents also need to be present for the pooja, meaning is it compulsory?

  85. I'm from Punjab & visiting Tirupati in Aug'13 along with my family. Me & my wife have been told to do abhishekam with milk according to our age (no. of years).
    Otherwise, no specific pooja is told to us. I've planned to perform pooja at Srikalahasti on 16-Aug, Friday morning and then move to Tirumala for overnight stay and Balaji darshan on 17-Aug, Saturday morning.
    Want to know if the pooja at Srikalahasti may be performed before darshan at Balaji temple? Also if we will be able to get 94kgs of milk at the spot or we need to give some prior intimation. The temple contact nos. are not responding.
    Thanks

  89. Hi Guruji,

    I have been reading alot about the Kala Sarvam Dhosam Puja and I was advised to travel to Kalasti Temple to perform this Puja. I did read the best day to perform this Puja is on a Sasti day which is usually once a month and the best timing will be during Rahu Kalam. Can you please confirm if this information is correct.

    I was also told we need to be on strict vegetarian diet for 10 days prior to this Puja. Is this 10 day sufficient/acceptable?

    Understand its not advisable go to other temples immediately after this Puja. How about the next day. We plan to go to Thirupathi the next day morning.

    Pls email at seethiru02@gmail.com
    Many thanks
    Thiru
