  Navagraha Temples
 
As per Indian Astrology the planetary positions determine a person’s destiny. It is commonly understood that Navagraha means nine planets – Nava meaning nine and graha meaning planet. However, graha in Sanskrit may also mean influence. Hence, according to some it is not nine planets but nine influences.
 
Whatever is the case, they are the nine biggest influences on the destiny of a person. There are nine temples (one for each Graha) located within a radius of 60 kms of Kumbakonam in TamilNadu. It is a belief that performing shanthi or parihara puja for the particular Graha(s) and its Lords will yield quick and timely results.
