Whereas each temple stays closed throughout the photo voltaic/lunar eclipse interval and reopens after the obligatory purificatory rituals, it is just the temple devoted to Srikalahastheeswara Swamy in Srikalahasti city that continues to be open all through the day.
The temple remained open on Tuesday, when photo voltaic eclipse was noticed, and the surge of devotees appeared never-ending. It’s on this shrine that ‘Rahu and Ketu’ are tamed and saved underneath leash by Lord Siva.
The widespread perception is supported by the ‘Rahu Ketu Puja’ carried out on this temple on a regular basis, by which lots of of devotees take part to undo the evil results of their astrological indicators, which they consider are attributable to the 2 serpents.
When the temples in and round Tirupati remained closed from 8 a.m. on Thursday, the well-known Saivite temple in Srikalahasti remained open.
In the meantime, Minister for Mines, Surroundings and Forest Peddireddi Ramachandra Reddy visited the temple to take part within the ‘Grahanakala Abhishekam’, a particular celestial tub carried out throughout the eclipse time. Native legislator Biyyapu Madhusudhan Reddy and temple officers escorted the Minister’s household to the sanctum sanctorum and provided ‘prasadam’ later.
