Hi 
 I am glad there is Jagananathar Perumal temple is
being built and all that, but I still have a benefit
of doubt in one aspect of the story !!! We all know
that there are plenty of Ramayans written by various
authors etc, but the key is to follow the Authentic,
which is Valmiki's Ramayan.  According to Valmiki Rama
never Worshiped Navagrahas, or any of that Nature.  So
its just a thought I thought I would share, thatís all
!!! Thank you and take care folks
