THERE ARE FEW POPULAR SHANEESWARAR TEMPLES TO BE VISITED FOR SANI PEYARCHI ETC., WHICH IS KNOWN TO ALL .
1- THIRUNALLAARU NEAR KARAIKAL - PONDICHERY. Here there is a Saneeswarar Sannathi which lord has removed Sani dosham for Nala Maharaaja. Hence the place is known as Nallaaru.
Main diety is Siva known as Arulmigu Darpanyeswarar. In Shivan temples we have to worship only Lord Shiva first & after that before leaving temple we have to pray Shaneeswarar.
2- Thiru Kollikaadu where after praying at Thirunallaaru, Nalamaharaaja prayed here for giving boons for flourishment.Here the Shaneeswarar is known as Pongu saneeswarar who will make all all pleasures to his devotees. Here The Main diety Shiva is as Arulmigu agneeswarar.
3- Kuchanoor in between Theni & Chinnamanoor. Here The shaneeswarar sannathi is the only Sannathi and Lord Shaneeswarar in the form of Lords Trinity. Kuchan n sanskrit means Saneeswaran.
4- Pozhichaloor near Chennai. Here the Main Diety is Agastheeswarar - shiva with all his ganas.
It is also informed that one who visits this temple on every janma nakshathra will be "flourishing"with all treasures.
APART FROM THESE TEMPLES THERE ARE FEW VERY ANCIENT TEMPLES WHICH ARE BECOMING POPULAR ONE BY ONE NOW .THESE TEMPLES HAVE RICH HERITAGE/HISTORY BEHIND THEM.
This village is about 8kms from Aranthangi of Pudhukottai district. The temple dates back to some 2000 years.
Lord Siva of this place was worshipped by Agasthaya muni.
Main deity is Swayambu Lingam known as Agastheeswarar and his consort Akilandeswari.
Purana says once Agasthyar was traveling from kasi to Rameswaram, he had to perform his daily rituals so he stopped at this place, to do his Siva pooja. There is a pushkarani near by. He performed pooja and he had to stay back for the night in the temple.
At the same time King Kalingarayan was there with his force in the same village in a matt. As per his fate he was in the grip of Ashtama sani period and he performed pooja at Rameswaram, and Lord Sani pooja at Thirunallaru as per guidance of his jyothish.
On his way back as it was night he stayed in this village for that day. King and Agasthya muni when they met here, to get rid of Lord Sani’s grip on him, King was asked to built a temple for the Siva lingam, in this place. He asked him to installNavagrahas. Here Sani is placed visible to Agastheeswarar from inside to NE direction.
Another unique thing is Ragu and Kethu are exchanged there place unlike the normal trend.
We see Goddess Akilandeeswari in a sanctum near the main Deity Agastheeswarar, and the Goddess Akila near the Navagraha.
Purana says Lord Siva had Kalathra dosha and when Agasthya muni worshipped Lord Siva, he was out of the dosha. So, Muni installed Goddess Akilandeswarinear the main sanctum. Goddess Akila, known as Navagraha Nayaki is near the Navagraha, so the grahas are considered powerful.
As per purana Kalathra dosham and Sani dosham can be rectified by worshipping Lord Agastheeswarar of this place. AS THE SORY TELLS THIS TEMPLE IS VERY EFFECTIVE FOR ASHTAMA SANI. VERY EFFECTIVE FOR RAHU,KETHU THOSHAM. THE NAVAGRAHA DIETIES ARE INSTALLED BY AGASTHIYA MAHARISHI WITH CONTROL BY GODDESS AKILANDESHWARI NEAR NAVAGRAHAMS - MAINLY TO REMOVE DOSHAMS TO KING KALINGARAYAN. PRAYING HERE ON JANMA NAKSHATHRAS WITH POOJA AND AKILANDESWARI STHOTHRAMS WILL BE VERY EFFECTIVE. THE VILLAGE,TEMPLE ALL IN A BAD SHAPE. SOME PHILANTHROPHISTS CAN ADOPT THIS WILLAGE AND I AM SURE IF ANYBODY TAKES INITIATIVE TO REBUILD THIS TEMPLE DEFINITELY WHATEVER THEY WISH, WILL BE GRANTED BY GODDESS AKILA, lORD AGASTHEESWARAR, AGASTHIYA MAAMUNI & NAVAGRAHAS.
