The Navagraha derived from the Sanskrit words 'Nava' and 'Graha'. Nava means 'nine', Graha means ' planet. The Navagraha Gods are Surya(Sun), Chandra(Moon), Mangal(Mars), Budha(Mercury), Guru(Jupiter), Shukra(Venus), Shani(Saturn), Rahu and Ketu.
The Lords of these planets are named after the planets themselves and they are worshipped in almost every aspect of Hinduism from a simple pooja to an elaborate yagna or wedding. Worship of these deities brings forth blessings in the form of protection and success in various undertakings.
The Navagraha are typically placed in a single square with the Sun (Surya) in the center and the other deities surrounding Surya; no two of them are made to face each other. In Agama Prathishta, Surya occupies the central place, Chandra on Surya's east, Budha on his south, Brihaspati on his west, Shukra on his north, Mangala on his south-east, Shani on his south-west, Rahu on north-west and Ketu in the north-east.
