Rudra Padam Sri Kalahasti Temple

Things to do at Rudra Padam Sri Kalahasti Temple

1) Do Abhishekam to all the Idols with the available milk. Just 2 – 3 liters is enough for the Abhishekam.

2) 3 Pradakshinams to the Rudra Padam Idols

3) Perform Abhishekam at Rudra Padam first followed by Rahu Ketu Pooja.

4) After completing Rahu Ketu Pooja, just do Anna Dhanam by providing meal packets to the poor. With this your Rahu Ketu Pooja will be complete and you will have benefits by doing this.


It has numerous benefits in performing Abhishekam at Rudra Padam and good for Rahu Ketu Kala Sarpa Dosha Nivarana Pooja.
