Some people may be under Kalasarpa dosha hosroscopes, that is the serpent planets Rahu and Ketu shall be at two ends between which other planets would be caught. In some cases, the entire period of 18 years Rahu main period will run. There are also cases where Rahu or Ketu would be occupying the second house in the horoscopes. In some cases they will be in the eight house from the Lagna or ascendant house and running through the Rahu or Ketu sub-period under any main period. There are also horoscopes with Kalathra dosha (that will affect the longevity of the spouse) combined with problems in marriage and snakes appearing in dreams. Some would have killed a snake intentionally or unintentionally. Some may be facing debt burdens. Those facing any or such problems in life due to the placement of the snake planets and/or under their main ruling or sub-ruling time, have to come to this temple seeking relief through prescribed prayer procedures.
Devotees perform abishek and archanas and offer vastras to Lord.
Greatness Of Temple:
As divine serpent lost his poison power due to Lord Shiva;s curse, prayed here and got back the power. Hence, it is believed that people who had lost anything valuable in their life will get it back by praying to Lord Shiva here. It is said that snakes may be sighted in the temple on Sundays, Tuesdays and Fridays as they would be worshipping the Lord these days, according to belief. This temple has the combined reputation of the temples of Tirunageswaram, Nagoor, Keelperumpallam, Kalahasthi and Kumbakonam. This is a remedial temple-Parihara Sthalam- for all adverse planetary aspects, according to puranas.
It is also noteworthy that Rahu and Ketu are not individually separate from each other as in other temples, but are in one single body with Lord in their mind. Those worshipping Lord and Mother together as one entity-Shivashakti-in this temple are assured of all benefits and peace in life.
When Lord Vinayaka offered His pranams to His father Lord Shiva, the snake around Shiva’s neck grew proud that Vinayaka was worshipping him too. Angry Shiva cursed the whole snake community that it should lose its power-viz. their poison power. All the Ashtama serpents-eight great serpents- appealed to Lord Shiva that it was not fair on His part to curse the whole community for the wrong committed by a single one and they also sought pardon for the snake that grew proud.
Lord Shiva told them that the Ashtama Nagas, Aanandhan, Vasuki, Dakshakan, Karkodakan, Sangabalan, Kuligan, Padman and Mahapadman and others headed by the divine snake Adishesha may come to Tirupamburam on Maha Shivrathri day when they will be pardoned and relieved of the curse. The place has one more history too.
In a tough fight to decide their prowess, Vayu broke mountains with all his power. But Adisesha checked Vayu by preventing them from going to pieces. Angry Vayu stopped supply of oxygen to lives threatening their end. Adishesha gave in to Deva’s appeal to save the world and left the contest. He came to Tirupamburam, worshipped Lord Shiva seeking His pardon.
Miracle Based: Lord Shiva is a Swaymabumurthy in the temple. Rahu and Ketu are not separate but in one body praying to Lord Shiva.
