Steps for Performing Sarpa Samskara At Kukke Subramanya

  1. If you are an unmarried person and you show your horoscope to an Indian astrologer, the astrologer immediately says it is Sarpa Dosham. Sarpa Dosham is generally believed to be the result of misdeeds from a past life/lives revisiting your present life. If your atma/ soul has caused any harm to snakes in a prior life, then it will cause problems for you in this life, hence 'sarpa dosham'. In order to obtain relief from 'Sarpa Dosham' you need to perfom 'sarpa samskara'. The cost of a 'sarpa samskara' ranges from Rs.1300 to Rs.1800.
  2. If you want to do the 'sarpa samskara' you need to go to the Kukke Subramanya Temple situated 285 KM from Bangalore. It is mandatory to stay there for two days.
  3. Accommodation is available, ranging from Rs.150 to Rs.400 per day (Non AC / AC). The pooja cost for a 'sarpa samskara' is Rs. 1500. In order to perform a 'sarpa samskara' pooja, it is advisable to book in advance. The temple authorities help out, though, by charging around Rs.300 to Rs.500 extra for a pooja to be performed without prior booking.
  4. The pooja is a 2 day program.On the first day it starts at 7.00 am and ends at 12.30pm. followed by lunch at the temple only good food is also provided at the night by temple. you are not supposed to eat /drink in the hotels or elsewhere during these two days. next day again you will be required to attend phase 2 of the pooja which again lasts for 4 hours again followed by lunch.
  5. If you have not booked in advance, then it is advisable to reach the temple one day(at least the earlier evening) prior to the intended pooja day.Rooms may be available in the temple lodges but rarely u get them immediately and you cant book the temple lodges over phone. Private lodges are available and can be booked over phone.
