Sarpa Samskara / Sarpa Dosha Sarpa Samskara/Sarpa Dosha is one of the poojas performed at Kukke Subramanya Temple by devotees to get rid of the sarpa dosha (according to belief, a person either in this birth or any of his previous births can be afflicted by the sarpa (serpent) dosha (curse) either knowingly or un-knowingly through many ways).Pilgrims going to the Temple have to cross the Kumaradhara River, taking a holy bath in it before they go on to the temple to have darshan.The devotees enter the courtyard from behind and walk around to go before the idol.This is because the pooja involves rituals similar to the ones done in performing shrartham (death rites).
