Shri Brahammagnana Pureeswarar

Temple’s Peculiarity:

This age old temple is in Keezha Korukkai. This temple has Lord Siva as its presiding deity along with the Goddess Pushpavathi. As the temple is very ancient it is little bit worn-out and the path to this temple is stashed between bushes, yet a visit to this temple will create a new beginning in life.


The legend has it that one day the great sage Gorakka Siddha on his way to the pilgrimage he took rest in the hut near the temple. He was much tiered and slept a whole night in that hut, in the morning he was bewildered to see a women sleeping just beside him and her sarees’s end is in the hands of the sage, he immediately severed his hand and did penance towards lord Siva. Lord Siva was touched by his diligence and blessed him with his hand, ergo came the name of the village Korukkai.


All Siva temples will have one Nandi (bull) before the Lord but out of usual there are two nandis before Lord Siva and Puspavathi and it is believed that if we offer cashew and groundnut garland to the Nandis our struggles will cease and we will have good fortune.
