Rahu Dosha Parihara Homam at Thirunageswaram kshetra:

Rahu Ketu Parihara Homam is a powerful Vedic ritual performed at the Thirunageswaram Kshetra. Homam is performed to remove obstacles from an individual’s life caused by Rahu and Ketu.

Thirunageswaram Temple:

The Thirunageswaram Kshetra is known for Sri Naganathaswamy Temple situated near Kumbakonam in the Thanjavur district of Tamil Nadu. Considered as one of the Navagraha Sthalams (Nine temples dedicated to Navagraha deities), Thirunageswaram temple is dedicated to Lord Rahu. This is also called Senbaranya (Champakaranya) Kshetra due to the presence of a large number of Senbaga (Champak) Trees.

According to legend, the temple was built by the Chola King Aditya and dates back to the 10th century. It is believed three serpents Adishesha, Takshaka, and Karkotaka offered Pujas to Lord Shiva here. Legend also says, the king of snakes Adishesha performed penance at this place and received a boon from Lord Shiva. Hence the presiding deity of Lord Shiva here is called Naganathar or Naganathaswamy. His consort Parvati has been consecrated here and is called by the popular name of Giri Gujambika, along with Lakshmi and Saraswati by her side.

Tirunageswaram Temple is also considered as one of the shrines of the 276 Padal Petra Sthalams of Lord Shiva. Lord Rahu has been depicted by a human face in this temple as compared to other temples where he has a face of a serpent. At the temple, Rahu is accompanied by his two consorts.

Performing Pujas and Havans to Lord Rahu at this temple is believed to help a person get rid of diseases, Pitru Dosha, Kala Sarpa Dosha and many more problems.

Ketu Dosha Parihara Homam at Keezhaperumpallam Kshetra

Keezhaperumpallam temple in Keezhaperumpallam Kshetra is also known as the Naganatha Swamy Temple and represents one of the Navagraha Sthalams dedicated to Lord Ketu. Ketu Sthalam is one of the most ancient temples and it is here, we can find the rare image of Ketu with his head intact. Ketu is seen here offering Pujas to Naganathar (Lord Shiva) with folded hands.

In the temple, Ketu is seen here to have the body of a demon and a head of a serpent. Ketu is offered Pujas first and then devotees proceed to pray Lord Shiva.

Keezhaperumpallam Temple

Keezhaperumpallam temple is located near Mayiladuthurai, a small town of Nagapattinam district in Tamil Nadu. The temple is one of the nine Navagraha temples dedicated to Lord Ketu. Lord Shiva is the presiding deity worshipped in the form of Naganathar and his consort Goddess Parvati is worshipped as Soundara Nayagi Amman.

During the Great Churn of the milky ocean, Devatas (Gods) and Asuras (Demons) were looking to get the divine Elixir (Amrit). Lord Vishnu decided to distribute the nectar among the Devatas only, as he feared that if he gave the nectar to the Asuras it would make them invincible. Swarbhanu, one of the demons disguised himself as one of the Gods and consumed the nectar. Having noticed this, the sun and the moon informed Lord Vishnu who struck the Asura with his Sudarshan Chakra and cut the Asura in two. The head of the Asura joined in with the body of a snake and became Rahu and the body of the asura kept growing as he had consumed the nectar. The body later cojoined with the head of a snake to become Ketu. They prayed to Lord Shiva seeking forgiveness and rid them of the sin they committed.

Performing Pujas and Homam at the Keezhaperumpallam Kshetra will get rid of Ketu Dosha, Naga Dosha and many related problems.

It is also believed the king of serpents Nagaraja and Karkotaka also worshipped Lord Shiva here.

Thirupampuram Temple

As the story goes, one day Lord Vinayagar was praying to Lord Shiva, the snake around the neck of Lord Shiva thought that Lord Vinayagar was offering prayers to him as well. Lord Shiva got angry with the snake and cursed the serpents to lose their powers. In order to retrieve their powers back, Adishesha and other serpents came to earth and offered prayers to Kudanthai Nageshwarar on Mahashivratri in the morning, Thirunageswaram at noon, Thirupampuram Pambureswarar in the evening and Nagoor Nageshwarar in the night to get the blessings Lord Shiva.

According to the history of the temple, snakes can be seen in the temple near the Gods and Goddesses. It is also said that people who visit the temple have never been bitten by any of the snakes in the temple.
