Mehandipur Balaji temple is located in Dausa district of Rajasthan. Thousands of devotees flock to this temple to get cured and get evil spirits exorcised.
You can see devotees doing strange things like pouring a bucket of hot water on head and still not burning themselves. Heavy stones pelted on people. People are chained like animals for being cured.
It is important that one should never look backwards after performing prayers and then walk out of the temple premises. The reason for not looking back is that if there are any evil spirits behind, it will not follow the devotee.
This temple is one of the 9 Navagraha Temples of Tamil Nadu and is about 5kms from Kumbakonam.
Sundays are very auspicious for Rahu / Raaghu poojas and devotees perform Paal (milk) Abhishekam to Rahu.
The unique feature existing here is that during the Abishekam (oblation) the color of milk changes from white to blue when poured upon the idol and again changes back to white when it has flown through the idol. This has been seen by common people.
This is a remarkable wonder that takes place only at Tirunarayur/Nachiyar Kovil near Kumbakonam, TamilNadu. This temple is one of the 108 Divya Desam temples of Vishnu.
This Kal Garuda’s (stone idol of Garuda, vehicle of Lord Vishnu) weight doubles every few steps when taken out for a procession, until he steps out of his sannathi he can be easily carried by 4 persons.
Then inside the temple his weight is known to increase as to be carried by 8 persons, then further outside the praharam he weighs heavier and as many as 16 persons are required to carry him, then 32 individuals carry him.
Totally outside the temple not even 64 persons are enough to carry him and he would keep on getting heavier and heavier ahead. He would sweat a lot too so that his cloths get drenched in the sweat But after the procession is over, while returning to his sannadhi he would start losing his weight.
This temple is one of the 108 Divya Desam temples of Vishnu, around 5kms from Kumbakonam Tamil Nadu.
In this temple Salt is not allowed inside the temple & neither is it used in any food preparations, as the lord had promised that he would partake food without salt in this sthalam.
But surprisingly, the temple prasadam’s like Puliyogara (tamarind rice), Pongal (rice & pulses kichdi), Dhadhyonnam (curd rice) etc taste just as it would if salt were to be added, when you eat it you realise that there is no salt, but you won’t miss the taste.

Shiva is worshipped in the form of a huge lingam, which is covered under a mound of ghee, formed by the daily abhishekam (ablution) with ghee over the years.
This is the only temple where the lingam is not visible. It is said that the ghee offered here for centuries does not have any foul odour and it does not melt even in the hot tropical climate of Kerala or with the heat of the hundreds of bright oil lamps burning nearby.
Small scrapping of this solidified ghee are given to devotees as ‘Prasada’, which is believed to have medicinal and curative properties.
