Thirunallar Saneeswarar temple


Photo: Tirunallar Saniswaran Temple or Dharbaranyeswarar Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Sani(saturn) located in Tirunallar in Karaikal district of Pondicherry, India. The presiding deity is Lord Siva, Dharbaranyeswar and the place Tirunallar was historically called Dharbaranyam. The temple is revered by the hymns of 7th century Tamil saivite poets, Appar, c**tarar and Campantar and is classified as Paadal Petra Sthalam.The presiding deity is Dharbaranyeswarar(Lord Siva)[3] and is believed to have been made of dharba grass. The worship is also centered around the icon of planet saturn, called Saniswarar, originally treated as the door keeper of the shrine. According to Hindu mythology, saturn resides in each rasi(zodiac) for two and half years. The belief is the malevolent planet is worshipped before entering the inner sanctum of Lord Siva.

Shani Mantra 
" neelanjana samaabhaasam raviputram yamaagrajam 
chaayaa martaandassmbhootam tamnamani shaneiswaram"

neelanjana samabhasam: glowing like a blue( black) colour mountain 
raviputram : son of ravi ( surya god) 
yamagrajam : elder brother of yama 
chaya marthanda sambhutam : son of chaya devi and marthanda ( sun god) 
namami sanaischaram : i pray you ., the lord shani

About the temple
Thirunallar is one of the most famous holy places in South India located in Karaikal which is 160 km south of Pondicherry (Pudhucherry). Thirunallar is famous for Lord Saneeshwara's (Saturn) temple. The only temple where Lord Saneeshwara lost all his power to Lord Shiva (Dharbaranyeshwarar) which saved his devotee Nalan from Saturn's curses.

One have to take bath in this nala theertam inorder to get relived for Lord Saneeswara bahavan. If we did that, then the effectes of Sani will be reduced as we can good results in our life. Its a belief form ancient time.

This temple is unique in its kind  and is the only temple dedicated to Lord saturn where he is a blessing god showing the sign "Abhaya hastham"

Temple Name
The name ThiruNallar(u) is believed to represent the association of King Nala of the Nishadha country who was delivered from the bad effects of Shani (Saturn) by invoking the Lord's mercy here (Nala + Aru = Nallaru). The word "Aru" here denotes "to heal" and the two words taken together means the place where Nala was redeemed from the (malefic) hold of Saturn through the Lord's Grace. Others are inclined to read the meaning 'between rivers' in the name Nal-Aru, as this place is situated amidst rivers Noolaru and Vanchiaru in the north, and Arasalaru in the south.

The legendary King Nala is said to have been relieved of his afflictions, which were due to the malefic influence of Saturn, after worship in this temple. Of the numerous tanks of theertams, the Nala theertam is the most important one.

Unusual Balipeedam 
The Balipeedam in a temple usually faces the sanctum at a distance directly in front of the Lord.

But the one here is not facing the sanctum directly but is a little away from  the  line  of the usual possition and thereby hangs a  tale.   A milkman was  supplying milk in the temple daily on the orders of the  local king.  But  the  accountant of the temple asked the milkman to deliver  the milk at his  house  and  enter it in the temple accounts.  But  the  honest milkman who  demurred to the instructions of the accountant was  threatened with drastic action by the latter.

The   helpless   milkman  could  only   seck  justiee   from   Lord Darbharanyeswara,  who  irked  by the accountant's  malfeasance  wished  to punishd him and released his lance in his direction.  And as the Balipeedam was in line with the coures of the lance it is said to have moved a little away from its position to clear the way for the passage of the hurtling lance.

A article abt this temple

A satellite sent by Nasa, while going round the globe, pauses automatically for three seconds when it crosses a particular spot over the Saneeswarar temple (a Hindu temple dedicated for Saturn), in Thirunallar near Tanjore at Tamil nadu, India. Nasa has also officially accepted such an effect, sent some of its scientists to the said place and could not find a possible scientific explanation and that they simply returned saying it is a miracle'.

The story therefore concludes that temple of the lord Saneeswarar has been correctly built at a place by the ancient people knowing that a heavy dose of UV rays are falling on the temple from space on a particular day every 30 months during the day of "sani peyarchi"(Shifting of the position of the planet from one zodiac to the other, called as Saturn transverse). The same UV rays should be responsible of the slowing down of the satellite whenever it crosses that place.

Recently i read  this article in a website. And don't knw how much this true.

    But i read somewhr that the navagraha temples are built in a place whr the corresponding planets have more influence at that particular place(Latitude longitude) than the other places. 
   And also Sani Yantra resembles the Saturn very much
