Sani Archana at Yama Dharma Raja temple, Thirupanjeeli on 9th May 2015
Shani’s Athidevatha is Yama (Also his brother). Praying Yama helps us to keep shani’s effect minimal:
About Thirupanjali and Yama Dharmaraja.
Yama Dharmaraja Temple @ Thirupanjali, 20 km from Tiruchi.
To save Markandeya from Certain death, Shiva killed Yama at Thirukadaiyur. Once Yama died, the population was increased and Bhooma Devi (the Mother Earth) could not withstand with the ever increasing population. So she prayed Shiva to give birth to Yama again. Shiva accepted Bhooma devi’s request and gave rebirth to Yama through “BilaDhwaram” means Cave. Those who pray Yama here will not have fear of death.
