Lord Saturn is considered as the most malefic planet when in adverse positions, but its wrath can be prevented by performing special poojas and offerings such as Dwitheeya Shanivara Maseshti, Nirajanam, etc.. During ancient times, Eramathoor was a place where a lot of Brahmins lived. They used to perform holy yagas and poojas within the village at the present day Eramathoor Nadakashala which is now better known as Nadala. There are proofs for the existence of Shaiva culture in this land holy land of yagas and havanams. The culture and tradition of worshipping Lord Shaneeshwara is believed to be adopted from these Brahmin immigrants from the neighboring state of Tamil Nadu. The word Lord Shani is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Shanaih Charaha’ meaning ‘slow mover’. Lord Shani is the indicator of asceticism or renouncement of the material world. In Indian astrology, Lord Shaneeswara is the indicator of discipline, authority, old age, asceticism, misery, workers, delays, ambition, leadership and authority, integrity, reputation and unparalleled wisdom.
