The following sentence was seen in Quora(If the reader wants,I can give the link)

Only Lord Shiva temples kept open During Solar , moon Eclipse, beacause nothing can effect lord Shiva , beacause lord Shiva is beyond everything . Navagrahas worship only lord Shiva .others temples kept closed during Eclipse

Is this true?Please give scripture references,if possible. (Although there are similar answers,they don’t give scripture references/answer doesn’t explain why)

    what's source? Only temples that have relationship with Rahu Ketu are not closed (like Srikalahasti temple) but all other Shiva temples are closed.
