Shri Brahmapureeswarar

Temple’s peculiarity:

The temple has lord Nataraja as its presiding deity. Lord Nataraja here graces as a classical dancer and his spouse Parvathi is in the adjacent shrine in the name of Sri Meenakshi.


The legend has it that Brahma the creator had five heads in equivalent to Lord Shiva. Ergo he was very proud and egoist, in order to teach him a lesson Lord Siva beheaded one of his head. After realizing his mistake he regretted a lot and went seeking penalty to all Siva temples, and thus he visited this temple also, hence this temple is named as Brahmapureeswarar.


This temple is very powerful in eradicating planetary effects, obstacles in child birth and marriages. The devotees are requested to offer white vastra and yellow saree to the God and Goddess.

Preferred Star:
