Navagraha Temples

Navagraha Temples

On 11th - 13th June 2003, Navagraha (Nine planets) temples were consecrated with Swami’s  blessings.

As per Indian Astrology, Nav Grahas (Nine Planets & Nodes) play a crucial role in the life of an individual. The nine grahas are Surya (Sun), Chandra (Moon), Mangal (Mars), Budha (Mercury), Brihaspati (Jupiter), Shukra (Venus), Shani (Saturn), Rahu (North Lunar Node) and Ketu (South Lunar Node). It is believed that the constant movement and subsequent positioning of these grahas over the course of one's life determine the present and future events for that individual.

  1. Surya Graha
  2. Chandra Graha
  3. Mangala Graha
  4. Budha Graha
  5. Guru Graha
  6. Shukra Graha
  7. Shani Graha
  8. Rahu Graha
  9. Kethu Graha
The study of grahas or planetary positions is one of the most important prerequisite for the Hindus in India before any major event or ritual such as housewarming, marriage, starting of a new business, etc. The current grahas are studied by an astrologer who then gives a go-ahead, recommends corrections or simply rejects the planned event based upon his assessment of the current planetary position in the persons horoscope.

Nakshatra vana  and Rasi vana details

There are 27 stars and 12 zodiac signs according to Indian astrology, there are specific species of plants for all the above stars and zodiac signs, we have developed a park of the above species. In one way this is encouraging the people to plant more trees according to their stars or zodiac signs, ultimately more forestation thereby Global de-warming. Secondly according to the scriptures the breeze generated by these plants forms a protective ring to the people around from the health point of view.
