There are four batches for Dosha Nivarana pooja : 08:30 AM, 10:30 AM, 12:30 PM and 05:30 PM. Devotees may choose one of those timings for pooja. The total cost is Rs.2000 including pooja items and neivedhya. It is recommended to offer 4 cubit green veshti for the Lord.
Performing special poojas to Budha deity on Wednesdays is considered auspicious to alleviate Budha dosha and let devotees be bestowed upon with knowledge and wisdom. The offerings presented to Mercury god are Moong dal and cloths of green color.
The major benefits of worshipping Budha deity at this temple are marriage boon, child boon, relief from pithru dosha (Munnorgal saabham in tamil), educational excellence, improvement and profitability in business, improvement in arts, music, astrology, maths and language skills, development in political status and complete relief from nervous disorders. To attain these, the devotees need to light 17 herbal oil lamps (agal vilakku in tamil) for Budhan deity and worship him by circumambulating the deity 17 times. Following this, they need to offer annadhana(free food) for 17 people.
The oil lamp, the thread (thiri) and the oil, all made up of herbs are available in the shops within the temple.
Devotees need to call and register before visiting the temple for offering pooja.
