  1. Revathi's Lord is Budhan.But is a Guru temple.How is this is classified as Revathi Natchathra temple? Likewise the Lord of the temple differ in almost all Natchathra temples.
    Why?

  2. I was also baffled by it. Various theories were put forward by my teachers, friends and acquaintances. Though it fitted most of the temples, some temples it did not. The major annual function and/or the star on which the temple was established and/or the star of the deity is the theory that commensurate with almost all the temples.
