Pooja for Navagraha's
Vaitheeswaran Temple or Pullirukkuvelur is a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Shiva located in Tamil Nadu, India. Shiva is worshipped as Vaitheeswaran or the "God of healing" and it is believed that prayers to Vaitheeswaran can cure diseases. It is one of the nine Navagraha (nine planets) temples associated with the planet Mars (Angaraka). The village is also known for palm leaf astrology called Naadi astrology in Tamil.
Among the shrines which are devoted to the nine planets, everyone knows, it is for planet mars. Lord Ganesh, Lord Vaithyanatha (Shiva), Goddess Thaiyalnayaki (Parvathi), Lord Muthukumarasamy (Lord Subramanya) and planet mars (Angaraka) are the five presiding deties. The ancient physician-Saint Dhanvantri got enhrined inside the temple behind Lord Vaithyanatha. On every Tuesday, Angaraka(an idol made of bronze), sitting on the goat, goes for procession. Angaraha represents planet mars, the fiery planet, red in color, owns the houses Aries and Scorpio and gets exalted in Capricorn in the Zodiac.
