LORD SANEESWARA PARIHARA TEMPLE

Shani Parihara Temple

Sri Dharparanyeswarar Temple is the oldest temple built by Chola Kings meant for easing out the troubles of Lord Saneeswarar. 

In Tamil Nadu, the Chola Kings had constructed nine different Shiva temples that are capable of removing the doshas created by the nine planets before 1000 of years ago. Let us find out the important temple that can remove the Shani doshas. The presiding deity here is Lord Shiva and has the name as Dharbaranyeswarar. Those days, there were Dharbai (a grass, which are considered as scared) all around in the area. Since the Temple is loacated in the midst of Dharbai (a grass), the Lord Shiva is called as Lord Dharbaranyeswarar. 

Let us find the story behind the Temples importance in deleting the bad effects of Shani.

Once upon a time, a King named Nala was ruling his country with great dedication, courage and compassion. He was a righteous person, who never deviated from his truthfulness. Even the Devas and Saints were appreciative of his character and his management of his county's affairs. King Nala was married to Princess Damayanthi, who was considered as very beautiful and has all the good qualities and character to posses. Hence the Couple lived and remained blessed in every spheres of life.

The Lord Shani wanted to test the righteousness of the King Nala and wanted to prove his truthfulness to the World. The 7 1/2 years period of Shani (Shani Sade Sati or Elarai Shani) had descended on the King Nala. He had lost his wealth and power to his brother and was forced to live in the forest along with his wife Damayanthi. That is, the King Nala became a pauper within a matter of minutes. He went through agony and trauma during the entire 7 1/2 years period of his life. He also got separated from his wife too. Even in the worst period of his life, he never deviated from his truthfulness.

Finally, he came to the Thirunallar, where the temple was located. He took head bath in a small pond, that is loacted in the northern side of temple. After wearning a new cloth, the Nala entered into the Lord Dharbarayaneswarar Temple to have a darshan of Lord Shiva. Lord Shani also trailed behind the Nala. The Lord Shiva banished the Lord Shani from enterning into the Temple and thus the Lord Shani was stay put in the area between the 1st and 2nd entrance of the Temple (even now). Lord Shiva removed all the curse and Nala became the King Nala and got back his wife and all his wealth.

Lord Shiva asked the King Nala, whether he has any desires to fulfilled. Then the King Nala had prayed to Lord Shiva that whoever visits the temple by taking bath in the pond and pray to the Lord Dharbarayaneswarar should also get back the same benefits (like King Nala) and must also be blessed by the Lord Shiva.

The Lord Shiva granted his wish and offered to fulfill another wish. King Nala requested that the Lord Shani present in the temple should not remain malefic (as per the Lord Shani's orginal character) and should remain benefice always. Lord Shiva had granted the second wish too. Thus the malefic nature of Lord Shani was removed in this Temple. Thus the Lord Shani ought to do the benefits to everyone, who prays to Lord Shani after praying to Lord Shiva. Hence the Lord Shani present in this particular temple remained benefice.

The pond that exists in the outerside of the Temple is called as "Nala Theerth". The Readers are advised to follow the guidelines, while visiting the Temples.

1. You must stay atleast a day (preferably overnight) in the Temple itself. There are plenty of space avaialble inside the Temple. (OR) you can stay in some Lodges located in this town.

2. You must take head bath in the pond. Please note that all your body and the clothes (that you wear) must be wet.

3. You must remove all your clothes or any jewellery or divine twines into the water itself . Hence remove the jewellery before you take a dip.

Warning: If anybody take bath with any clothes or jewellery or any type of materials that are worn around their body, then those articles/clothes/jewellery must be removed into the water (while taking bath). If they carry any type of materials with their body after completing the bath would bound to be badly affected. That is, all the Shani doshas that had been left over by others will come along with the person, who do not adhere to this guidelines.

4. You can ask your family members or friend to surround with other clothes (when you remove you clothes).

5. You must remove the wetness from the body by using a dry towel. After leaving the Pond, don't look back at the "Nala Theerth".

9. You must worship or do Puja to Lord Shani at the end, before leaving the temple.
