Keezhperumpallam is also called as Vanagiri and presiding deity is Lord Naganathar. There is a separate sanctum for the special deity Lord Kethu and is one among the Navagraha Stalams in Tamil Nadu.
Naganathar Temple, Kilperumpallam
Ketu or the southern point of the Moon also known as the “Chayya Graha” or shadowy planet is considered a worldly malefic and spiritually beneficial planet, as it causes a mild amount of sorrow, loss and thus turns a man towards God and Spirituality.
Planet Kethu is seen with his serpent head and human body facing west on his Simha (lion) seat with folded hands worshipping Lord Shiva. He is the authority for wisdom.
Pooja details in Naganathar Temple
Those facing some adverse aspects of this planet, pray first to Lord Naganatha and Kethu with red flowers, offering cloth of multi color and horsegram rice – Kollu sadham – as nivedhana and light seven deepas.
Those suffering from gastric troubles, neurological set backs, lacking courage and those aspiring progress in trade and undertakings, seeking unity and prosperity in family and longevity and welfare of succeeding generations pray to Lord Naganathaswami and planet Kethu. They perform milk abishek on their birth star days with nivedhana and offer vastras in different colours.
Pujas are performed to planet Kethu at Rahukalas and Yemakanda Kala times. These times come 90 minutes every day. There will be 16 types of abishek and homas with a nivedhana made of gram powder, salt and pepper in rice. Vastras are offered in different colours.
