" Himakundha mrunalabam Thaythyanam paramam gurum!
Sarvasasthra Pravaktharam Bargavam Pranamamyaham!!"

Kanjanur Sukran Lord Sukran - SaranathanThe main temple for Lord Sukran is located at Kanjanur, 18 km in the Kallanai-Poompuhar Highway of Thanjavur district. The Lord blesses his devotees with wealth and prosperity. If one has the blessings of Lord Sukran, then he will achieve all that he aims at.
According to the Puranas, Lord Vishnu in his Vamana avatar asked King Mahabali for three feet of land that He would measure Himself. As requested by Lord Vishnu, when Mahabali acceded to the request, and as was the practice, took up the kamandalam to pour water to symbolically signify the donation to Vamana, Lord Sukran took the form of a bee and blocked the flow of water.Immediately, Mahabali took a stick and pierced the outlet of the kamandalam, blinding Lord Sukran.
It is ideal to pray to Lord Sukran by giving away white cloth, white Lotus, diamond, 'mochai' powder and athi for their betterment in life and in work. It is believed the unemployed will get jobs.
Those who have Sukra dosham have to wear diamond and pray to Goddess Raja Rajeswari and also donate white clothes, silver and mochai to be relieved of their dosham.
