Indian astrology believes that the planetary positions of the nine planets in a geocentric orbit determine the way a person will live, progress and exemplify one’s life to others before death.
Nava means nine and graha means planet. There are nine temples located in Tamil Nadu representing each planet in the Navagraha.
All nine of them are located within a sixty-kilometre radius around Kumbakonam in Thanjavur district.
