Lord Saniswara is one of the most important planets of the Navagraha. He is also the bestower of benevolent grace, though at times the devotee faces problems when Lord Saniswara is places in a malevolent position in the horoscope. In order to appease Him and receive his bountiful Grace devotees offers prayers and special offerings to him. Only in a few temples do we see a separate sannadhi for Lord Saniswara like in Skandasramam where this idol made up of stone is 14 feet in height and is placed in the `Esanya Moolai’ in between North and East right opposite Lord Panchamukha Anjaneyar. Since Lord Saniswara is facing Lord Hanuman it is believed that whoever is in the clutches of Sani will not face much of problems. Lord Saniswara is in the standing posture with one leg on his vehicle the crow while the other leg is placed on the ground.
Around the sannadhi are installed the different forms of Lord Saniswara. The gopuram is like the Orissa type of architecture.
