Kukke Subramanya Sarpa Samskara Pooja Tickets Direct Booking

Direct tickets available…but it depends on the rush for this pooja and cancellations…I have gone there directly by looking at the unavailability of booking for next 45 days… Visited Dharmasthala on 14th aug…then visited Kukke. In Kukke, it has taken 2 days for me to understand how to get booking for this pooja…there will be few cancellations and postponements exists every day in online bookings..those slots will be filled by the waiting list devotees who give their names in the protocol office room at least one day before. I have given 1 day before. Next day early morning, I reached Sarpa Sanskara Seva counter by 7:45. Then I noticed that they called for online bookings and Brahmins.later started calling the names of the waiting list of devotees(given by means of Kukke priests who perform the pooja or by individuals like me by giving it in protocol office. I have got confirmation around 8:15 am. Here I have faced language issue. Complete info is not available. To figure it out it has taken a lot of effort and 2 days time. Try it directly if you want to do it urgently. But it needs 3 to 4 days and depends on the rush.
