Prayers
It is widely believed that worshiping in this temple will improve one’s social status. There is a belief that the devotees will earn through legal and righteous means and will also regain any property or wealth that was earlier lost due to deceit. Those afflicted by adverse Saturn aspects pray to Lord Agneeswarar and also Sani Bhagwan for relief. Devotees perform abishek to Lord and offer vastras. Doing poojas with “Vanni leaves” (Sthala Virutcham of this temple) to Lord Saneeswara Bhagavan will provide us with the Kubera Sampath.
