Hyderabad: The Srikalahasti temple in Chittoor district is going to introduce Naga Pratishta Puja for early marriage for brides- and grooms-to-be. The ritual will be performed at Rs15,000 fee, the second costliest in the country after `Vastram' Puja at Tirumala.

The Puja is believed to bring heavenly blessing on those finding it difficult to get married or for childless couples who are. According to reports, the temple will start performing this Puja once it is cleared by the state government.

The official added that uniqueness in the pooja is that a new snake god idol will be installed for each pooja and archaks will perform pooja and abhisekham on a daily basis. 

One of the archaks at the temple said that the decision to undertake puja at temple premises was taken as some of the archaks were performing outside at higher charges from Rs 20,000 to 1 lakh.

Meanwhile, Srikalahasti temple trust chairman Guruvaiah Naidu said that puja performing in the temple gives best results as Shiva and Parvati located here have maximum power to control Rahu and Ketu.
