According to Hindu mythology there are nine celestial bodies of the zodiac - the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu. There are a set of nine temples in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu, each dedicated to one of these nine bodies. According to Hindu beliefs, these celestial bodies have a beneficial or malefic influence on an individual’s horoscope as they move through their planetary course. Worshipping them helps remove their negative impact. On this day-excursion from Trichy, visit the Temple of Jupiter situated in the town of Alangudi.
